"Smokin' Aces" stars Peter Berg and Jason Bateman are poised to again share scenes in Joe Carnahan's "White Jazz."
Finding each other being gathered up again in one screen after "Smokin' Aces", Peter Berg and Jason Bateman are set to star together once more in "White Jazz", the sequel to the 1997 "L.A Confidential", the film's director Joe Carnahan told Rope of Silicon.
A Warner Independent Pictures production, the picture is based on James Ellroy's novel of the same title which revolves around the daily work of Lieutenant David "Dave" Klein and his involvement with the dark side of the L.A.P.D. Oscar-winning actor George Clooney has already been billed to play the character.
Apart from helming the project, Carnahan is also on duty to pen the script accompanied by his brother, Matthew Michael Carnahan as well as to produce along with Grant Heslov, Patrick D. Choi, Michelle Grace, Diane Nabatoff, plus Clooney, who will carry out the duty via his Smokehouse Productions.
