First Look at George Clooney in 'The American'

By way of The Playlist, here's our first glimpse at George Clooney in The American, which used to be A Very Private Gentleman. Ready, aim, fire.

Clooney is working with director and photographer Anton Corbjin on the project, which is currently shooting in Italy and, for the time being at least, is scheduled for a September 2010 release. It's an assassin movie about a man who who travels to a small Italian village for his final mission, but passes himself off as an artist who has come to town to paint native butterflies. Because he lives two lives, Clooney's assassin finds himself making friends, platonic and romantic, which complicates his final mission.

The movie is based on a novel by Martin Booth, and Clooney and The Men Who Stare at Goats director Grant Heslov are producing for Smoke House. It's odd that Focus has set a release date of September 1st, though, because that jumps ahead of Toronto, Telluride, and Venice, three festivals that have been really kind to Clooney's films over the years.

I just saw The American. Probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen. The American is awful. Nonsensical, stupid and vapid.
