If you sift through all the compliments that everyone is giving Clooney, you can see Grant Heslov who serves as one of the film’s producers. Heslov not only produces films but he’s a veteran actor and he also directs. As a matter of fact he co-starred with Clooney in Leatherheads and directed him in last year’s The Men Who Stare at Goats. He has a very impressive resume, that many people don’t know about.

As the video states, The American’s director Anton Corbijn comes from a background in photography so we’re anxious to see the photo book that goes along with the film. The shots look amazing with their color and composition and tone. The film takes on a dirty and gritty subject like murder and illustrates it in a very polished and pristine way. The magic of cinematography always amazes us.

The American is scheduled to hit theaters on September 1st.
