George Clooney moving production company to Sony

EW has learned that George Clooney will be moving his production company Smokehouse from its long-time home at Warner Bros. to the Sony lot. The Culver City-based studio is currently negotiating a two-year deal with the famed actor and his production partner Grant Heslov. Clooney spent eight years at Warner Bros. producing such films as Michael Clayton and Good Night and Good Luck. His previous production company, Section Eight with Steven Soderbergh, was also housed on the Burbank lot. Smokehouse’s The Informant, starring Matt Damon and directed by Steven Soderbergh will be released by Warner Bros. in the fall, while Overture Films will bow the Clooney-starrer Men Who Stare at Goats from director Heslov next year. Insiders are buzzing about the reason for the move with few saying that Clooney and Heslov were looking for too much cash to justify a production company that has a history of winning the studio awards but not doing much to fill their coffers financially.

    George Clooney is Gay?
    That is a new rumor, because Colin Seensfarn wrote a new german book, called DreamTeam, and said George is through analyzing-result gay.
    Could that be?

    The article is about making a change in a business relationship. It’s business. Very big business. His so-called disappointingly performing films still made somebody a big ton of money. His craft was always about quality films that make you think, anticipate and try to figure out as opposed to slap stick or gratuitous sex and violence. Congratulations to both Mr. Clooney and Mr. Heslov on this exciting new business collaboration.
