George Clooney is in Puerto Rico now shooting Men Who Stare at Goats. The title is a pretty funny one but do not be deceived.

According to the synopsis, “a reporter (Ewan McGregor) in Iraq might just have the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady (Clooney), a guy who claims to be a former member of the U.S. Army’s First Earth Battalion, a unit that employs paranormal powers in their missions.”

I too thought at first this would be some sick comedy involving, goats. The film is based on the book The Men Who Stare At Goats by Jon Ronson and is set partly in the late 70s, which also stars Kevin Spacey, Jeff Bridges and Rebecca Mader.
