AceShowbiz - Filming is stressful enough, but filming with George Clooney seemingly is worse. According to a new report, the Oscar winner is giving everyone on the set of his next project, "Good Morning, Midnight", a very hard time.
"He's stressing to get his cast assembled for the next major project [Good Morning, Midnight] which he’s producing and directing AND starring in," a source reveals to Radar Online. "And he's finding himself in tense negotiations with actors' reps while having to keep it all within budget."
It is said that the controversies surrounding his family plays a role in his behavior on set. "He's just been a grouch to deal with and it’s going to get worse when filming gets underway," the informant claims. The source most likely refers to a report of his wife Amal Clooney's sister, Tala Alamuddin Le Tallac, being sentenced to jail for drunk driving in Singapore in addition to getting a fine of $6,400 and having her license revoked for four years.
"With George, it's his way or the highway. Everyone's going to have to walk on eggshells and endure his up and down moods and laugh at his 'dad jokes,' " details the insider.
However, friends of the star beg to differ, claiming that George can't be happier right now. "The film has been cast for months and the shoot is more than halfway through," a rep also adds. "Ahead of schedule and everyone is having a blast."
In the upcoming Netflix flick, the 58-year-old actor/director is set to play a lonely scientist in the Arctic. He is racing to make contact with the crew of a spacecraft struggling to return to Earth. The new film is an adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton's post-apocalyptic novel of the same name.
