George Clooney will make his third collaboration with Coen brothers in "Burn After Reading."

Apparently it does not take such a long time for George Clooney to find himself working together again with the famed Coen brothers, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen. The Oscar-winning actor has agreed to take starring part in "Burn After Reading" of which script is penned by the brothers, Production Weekly has learned.

Doing so, the project then marks the third time Clooney collaborates with the Coens after their previous works in "Intolerable Cruelty" and "O Brother, Where Art Thou?." What interesting here is that the Hollywood heartthrob has decided to take an antagonistic role as a hit man instead of a protagonist part as he did lately on his recent stints.

Loosely based on the former CIA director Admiral Stansfield Turner's novel, the picture revolves around a CIA agent who loses a disc containing the manuscript he has written about some of his secret missions. Production is slated to begin in August next year after Clooney finishes filming "Leatherheads" for Universal Pictures.
