George Clooney's next movie to hit theaters is "Michael Clayton," which opens on October 12th, with a limited release in New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto a week earlier.
Warner Bros. has graciously provided us with a full array of photos from the movie, numbering 30 if you include the poster artwork. Those photos have been added to the Photo Gallery.
Clooney's title character is a "fixer" at one of the largest corporate law firms in New York. At the behest of the firm's co-founder Marty Bach (Sydney Pollack), Clayton, a former prosecutor from a family of cops, takes care of Kenner, Bach & Ledeen's dirtiest work. Clayton cleans up clients' messes, handling anything from hit-and-runs and damaging stories in the press to shoplifting wives and crooked politicians. Though burned out and discontented in his job, Clayton is inextricably tied to the firm.
At the agrochemical company U/North, the career of in-house chief counsel Karen Crowder (Tilda Swinton) rests on the settlement of the suit that Kenner, Bach & Ledeen is leading to a seemingly successful conclusion. When the firm's top litigator, the brilliant Arthur Edens (Tom Wilkinson), has an apparent breakdown and tries to sabotage the entire case, Marty Bach sends Michael Clayton to tackle this unprecedented disaster and, in doing so, Clayton comes face to face with the reality of who he has become.
The movie is written and directed by Tony Gilroy, who has served as a writer for such great movies as "The Bourne Identity" (and its sequels) and "The Devil's Advocate." This appears to be his first turn in the director's chair, so it will be interesting to see if he can put bring his own words to life effectively.
