George Clooney to Stare at Goats


George Clooney will topline, and his Smoke House partner Grant Heslov will direct, Men Who Stare at Goats.

Variety says the film is an adaptation of British journalist Jon Ronson’s book about the U.S. Army’s First Earth Battalion, a unit that was to use paranormal powers.

The title refers to the notion that one can kill a goat by staring at it.

The script was written by Peter Straughan (How to Lose Friends & Alienate People).
