Brad Pitt & George Clooney Accepted a Lower Salary for Upcoming Movie for One Specific Reason

George Clooney is opening up about his upcoming movie with Brad Pitt, which was recently bought by Apple Original Films after a bidding war.

The Oscar-winning actor and director says that he and Brad agreed to take a lower salary if the studio agreed to one condition.

The untitled thriller movie, which is rumored to be a “tale of two lone wolf fixers assigned to the same job”, will be written and directed by Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts.

“Yeah. Brad and I. It was an exciting time because it got to be one of those weird bidding wars which happen every once in a while, and it ended up being pretty extreme, and Apple came in with a really big number for Brad and I,” he told Deadline.

George added, “And we said we’d like to take less as long as we can guarantee that we can have a theatrical release, and they said great.”

George also talked about streaming movies living in the same world as theatrical releases.

“I do think that there’s a way that we can all co-exist,” he said. “You know, I do think that there is a version of this that we can do. There’s a lot of movies that are fun to still see on a big screen. You know, the film I’m doing with Julia [Roberts] right now is a Universal film, and it’s a comedy, and comedies are fun to see in a room full of people.”

George recently explained why he once turned down $35 million for one day of work.
