Well, this is a rather interesting casting, if all goes as planned. According to Varitey, George Clooney is in talks to start in Disney & Brad Bird's upcoming science fiction film, called 1952.

"George Clooney is negotiating to star in Brad Bird's extraterrestrial pic "1952" at Disney. Studio is keeping the plot under wraps, though the project is said to be a "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"-esque story following a man who makes contact with aliens on Earth."

Clooney is no stranger to sci-fi genre. He played a lead role in Solaris, a science fiction-psychological drama directed by Steven Soderbergh, and he is also starring in Alfonso Cuarón's upcoming film, Gravity. 1952 will be Brad Bird's second live action film (first one being Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol). Damon Lindelof and Jeff Jensen wrote the film.
