Hail, Caesar! has been revealed as the next feature from sibling writer/director pair Joel and Ethan Coen.

Announced with a full cast list and synopsis, the Coen brothers' follow-up to Inside Llewyn Davis will star George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill.

That's one hell of a cast.

Universal Pictures have set the film's release date for 5 February 2016 and released the following synopsis.

Four-time Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct HAIL, CAESAR!, an all-star comedy set during the latter years of Hollywood's Golden Age...

HAIL, CAESAR! follows a single day in the life of a studio fixer who is presented with plenty of problems to fix.

Usually it being a Coen brothers movie is reason enough to believe a film will be funny, but there's a lot of recent comic talent on show as well. Tatum and Hill starred in the critically and commercially successful 21 and 22 Jump Street movies, while Fiennes was hilarious in Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel earlier this year.

Clooney has always been great for the Coens, having starred in O Brother Where Art Thou and Intolerable Cruelty. This is the first time Clooney has worked with the Coens since 2008's Burn After Reading.
