It looks like George Clooney is gearing up to get back behind the camera, as Deadline is reporting that he is in talks to direct the sci-fi film Echo for 20th Century Fox.
Echo is being produced y Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps from a script by Christopher MacBride (The Conspiracy, The Education of Fredrick Fitzell). Described as a thriller with a sci-fi edge, the project follows a drone specialist who has a psychological crisis: is he paranoid in suspecting his lover is not who she appears to be, and could she possibly have been replaced?
Clooney last directed the 2017 black comedy Suburbicon starring Matt Damon, which received mixed reviews. He is also producing the upcoming TV adaptation of Joseph Heller’s novel Catch-22, and helmed the opening episode.
