About The Production
Four-time Oscar-winning filmmakers JOEL COEN & ETHAN COEN (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) write and direct Hail, Caesar!, an all-star comedy fueled by a brilliant cast led by JOSH BROLIN (No Country for Old Men), Oscar winner GEORGE CLOONEY (Gravity), ALDEN EHRENREICH (Blue Jasmine), RALPH FIENNES (The Grand Budapest Hotel), JONAH HILL (The Wolf of Wall Street), SCARLETT JOHANSSON (Lucy), Oscar winner FRANCES MCDORMAND (HBO's Olive Kitteridge), Oscar winner TILDA SWINTON (Michael Clayton) and CHANNING TATUM (Magic Mike).

When the world's biggest star vanishes and his captors demand an enormous ransom for his safe return, it will take the power of Hollywood's biggest names to solve the mystery of his disappearance. Bringing the audience along for a comic whodunit that pulls back the curtain and showcases the unexpected humor and industry drama found behind the scenes, Hail, Caesar! marks the Coens at their most inventive.

Eddie Mannix's (Brolin) job as a studio fixer begins before dawn, as he arrives just ahead of the police to keep one of Capitol Pictures' prized starlets from being arrested on a morals charge. His work is never dull, and it is around the clock.

Each film on the studio's slate comes complete with its own headache, and Mannix is tasked with finding a solution to every one of them. He is the point man when it comes to procuring sign-off from religious leaders on an upcoming Biblical well as when disgruntled director Laurence Laurentz (Fiennes) shirks at having cowboy star Hobie Doyle (Ehrenreich) thrust upon him to appear in Capitol's latest sophisticated drama.

While he rushes from one star's-self-induced emergency to another, not only must Mannix figure out a press-friendly way for swimming sensation DeeAnna Moran (Johansson) to work her way out of a personal jam, he must make sense out of the latest suspicious behavior of song-and-dance superstar Burt Gurney (Channing Tatum).

As if these giant-ego dramas weren't enough with which to start the day, Mannix has been confronted with the biggest crisis of his career: one of the studio's biggest moneymakers, Baird Whitlock (George Clooney), has been kidnapped right in the middle of production of his latest swords-and-sandals epic, Hail, Caesar!, and a mysterious group that calls itself "The Future" has claimed responsibility. Either the studio forks over $100,000, or they can say goodbye to their bread and butter.

Zipping from one problem to the next, Mannix must keep the lid on all of them, all the while horse-trading information to keep his talents' names out of the gossip columns written by a pair of rival siblings, Thora and Thessaly Thacker (Tilda Swinton). Well, at least their names out of concocted stories he isn't interesting in promoting to the sisters' readers.

For this fixer, it's all in a day's work.

The comedy is produced by Joel and Ethan Coen through their Mike Zoss Productions, alongside Working Title Films' TIM BEVAN and ERIC FELLNER (The Theory of Everything, Les Miserables), who have partnered with the brothers since their Academy Award-winning Fargo.

Joining the Coen brothers behind the scenes is a crew of longtime collaborators and those new to their films. They are led by 13-time Oscar-nominated director of photography ROGER DEAKINS (No Country for Old Men, Skyfall), production designer JESS GONCHOR (A Serious Man, True Grit), editor RODERICK JAYNES (No Country for Old Men, True Grit), costume designer MARY ZOPHRES (No Country for Old Men, Interstellar) and composer CARTER BURWELL (True Grit, Carol).

Hail, Caesar! is executive produced by ROBERT GRAF (No Country for Old Men, True Grit).
