Among Clooney and Heslov's previous collaborations are "Good Night and Good Luck" and "The Ides of March." They will next produce the upcoming screen adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning play "August: Osage County" by Tracy Letts.
"George and Grant are gifted producers, with great taste and instincts, and a work ethic that is second to none," TWC chief Harvey Weinstein said in a statement. "I personally wanted them on board as their talent is a perfect fit for a film of this artistic caliber. We are delighted to welcome them to the 'August: Osage County' team, and feel very lucky to have them."
"Grant and I are thrilled to work on this project. It's already a great cast and great material and I can't think of anyone better than Harvey to put this all together," Clooney said. "And we're particularly excited to work with our dear friend John Wells. It's such a terrific group and we feel honored to help bring it to the screen."
