A new trailer for the upcoming drama Money Monster throws George Clooney on TV and into hot water.
Jodie Foster directs the financial thriller, which stars Clooney as Wall Street guru and investment talk show host Lee Gates, who is taken hostage on-air when a rogue gunman (Jack O’Connell) crashes the show with a bone to pick with Gates. Julia Roberts co-stars as Gates’ producer, Patty.
Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, where the trailer debuted, Foster revealed that Clooney and Roberts filmed their roles on completely different shooting schedules. A glance at the trailer suggests it wasn’t a difficult feat, considering Roberts’ producer appears to be safely incubated in the control room while the hostage crisis pans out on air.
Money Monster also stars Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe, Dominic West, and Giancarlo Esposito. Written by Jamie Linden, Alan DiFiore and Jim Kouf, the film is due out in theaters in May.
