the idea may be a little premature to say, although a first look at the film as well as the announcement of its Toronto Film Festival premiere inspire confidence in which Clooney could have a contender on his hands.
In “Suburbicon,” Matt Damon stars as the patriarch of a family who lives in a peaceful, idyllic suburban community called Suburbicon in which will be much more than the idea seems. Set in summer 1959, the story follows Damon’s Gardner Lodge as he navigates “the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, as well as violence,” according to a description coming from studio Paramount.
The film, directed by Clooney as well as written by Joel as well as Ethan Coen, stars Damon, Julianne Moore as well as Oscar Issac.
The first pictures coming from the movie, released Tuesday, show Damon in full ’50s dad mode.
Also on Tuesday, the Toronto International Film Festival announced its initial slate of films, a lineup in which included “Suburbicon,” which will hold its North American premiere at the festival in September.
Clooney isn’t the only high-profile actor-turned-director bringing a project to TIFF.

Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” will hold its international premiere. as well as Andy Serkis will make his directorial debut with the made-for-Oscars film “Breathe,” starring Andrew Garfield as a man who pioneers technology for people with disabilities after becoming paralyzed due to polio.
