George Clooney and Brad Pitt, two of Hollywood’s most iconic actors, are joining forces once again, but this time as rival fixers in Jon Watts' gripping new thriller, "Wolfs." Set to premiere in theaters on September 20, this Sony Pictures release, produced in collaboration with Apple Studios, promises to blend intense drama with suspenseful twists.

"Wolfs" explores the shadowy world of professional fixers - those tasked with cleaning up the most sensitive messes. The film features Clooney and Pitt as two top-tier fixers, each accustomed to working solo. However, their paths cross in an unexpected twist when they are hired for the same covert operation.

The trailer, which dropped Wednesday, showcases a snippet of their complex dynamic, revealing the tension and unexpected camaraderie that ensues. The narrative unfolds over a single, tumultuous night. As revealed in the trailer, both characters are initially unaware of each other's involvement, leading to a series of intense encounters.

"There’s nobody who can do what I do," Clooney’s character asserts confidently, only to find his claim challenged by Pitt's surprise appearance at the scene.

Wolfs: Behind the Scenes

Amy Ryan, Austin Abrams, and Poorna Jagannathan also contribute significant performances, enriching the film's multi-layered plot.

Behind the scenes, the movie boasts a strong production team. Clooney teams up with Grant Heslov to produce under their Smokehouse Pictures banner, while Pitt collaborates with Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner from Plan B Entertainment.

Watts, along with Dianne McGunigle, also serves as a producer. Jon Watts, celebrated for his direction in the blockbuster "Spider-Man: No Way Home," brings his unique vision to "Wolfs," penning and directing this anticipated feature.

His expertise in blending character-driven stories with action elements is expected to shine once again in this thriller. Both Clooney and Pitt have a storied history of collaborations, from the comedic "Burn After Reading" by the Coen brothers to the heist-centric "Ocean’s Eleven" series.

Their on-screen chemistry continues to draw audiences, promising a compelling watch in "Wolfs." As "Wolfs" gears up for its theatrical release, it is poised to be a significant addition to the thriller genre, showcasing the talents of its star-studded cast and acclaimed director. Fans of Clooney, Pitt, and Watts will undoubtedly be marking their calendars for this thrilling cinematic rendezvous.
