George Clooney is Up in the Air

July 30, 2009

George Clooney stars in Jason Reitman's new film, Up in the Air, which is set to screen at the Toronto Film Festival. The festival takes place from September 10 through 19, and Clooney plays a businessman trying to rack up frequent-flier miles before he gets downsized.

Clooney's co-star is Vera Farmiga. The film was adapted from a novel by Walter Kirn. Also screening at the festival is French director Jean-Pierre Jeunet's (Amelie) new movie Micmacs.

Reitman definitely has high expectations awaiting him after the success of Juno, so it'll be interesting to see if he can sustain interest in his career. Meanwhile his pop Ivan is still mulling over whether or not he's interested in getting behind the camera for Ghostbusters 3.

What'll the Reitmans do next?!
