George Clooney will both star and direct sports-themed movie "Leatherheads" for Universal Pictures.

Seems eager to continue taking double jobs, George Clooney has smoothly signed on to both star and direct Universal Pictures's new project of football-themed film feature entitled "Leatherheads", Variety has reported.

In accordance with this deal, Clooney will also re-write the script while his Smoke House Productions partner Grant Heslov is set to produce alongside Casey Silver with Renee Zellweger in negotiations to co-star the picture.

Intended to be a romantic comedy set against the backdrop of pro football's formation in the 1920s, the movie will revolve around an aging football player who persuades a college star to give up his education and try his luck in a new professional league.

Clooney, a native of Lexington, Kentucky, initially began his acting career through small screen features and hit it big through NBC's medical drama series of "ER." He is last seen playing alongside Matt Damon and Amanda Peet in "Syriana" which won him an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role category earlier this year.
