Malkovich is gearing up to star in the latest Coen Brothers film Burn Before Reading. According to The Hollywood Report, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Frances McDormand will also appear in the film.

Said to be a dark, screwball comedy, the film revolves around Malkovich's character. He will play a retired CIA agent that loses a disc containing some very important information on it. McDormand will play his wife, and Clooney will appear as an assassin sent to kill Malkovich's character. There's no word yet on what part Brad Pitt will be playing.

Shooting will start in August of this year.
