Coen brothers' Hail, Caesar! gets a release date

Hail, Caesar! , the next project from the Coen brothers has received an official release date, with Universal scheduling the film to arrive in 2016.

The film will open in the US on 5 February 2016, and will follow the antics of a studio fixer in the golden age of 1950s Hollywood.

The story will focus upon a single day in the life of said fixer, as he attempts to keep his studio's stars on the straight and narrow, and out of the gossip pages.

George Clooney will head up a stunning ensemble cast that also includes the likes of Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.

Production on the film will kick off later this year, giving the brothers ample time to hit their 2016 deadline.
