George Clooney is reteaming with filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen for their third film together, "Burn After Reading," a spy caper about a CIA agent who loses the disc of the book he is writing. The film will mark a more comedic take on the world of spooks than Clooney's recent Oscar-winning dramatic turn in "Syriana." Clooney will play a killer. Clooney and the Coens previously worked together on 2000's "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" and 2003's "Intolerable Cruelty." Anne Thompson reports.
