The Jacket: Oscar winner Adrien Brody looks set to lead the cast of The Jacket, a disturbing sci-fi thriller set to be produced by George Clooney's Section Eight.

Brody would play a soldier recently convicted of murder, who just happens to believe that he's traveling through time. Early word has the script being top-notch, and the film looks set to move forward under the helm of director John Maybury.

Brody, who most recently won the Oscar for playing a Jewish pianist deprived of freedom and music in Nazi Germany (go figure!), will most likely tackle the project after his upcoming turn in M. Night Shyamalan's The Woods.
