George Clooney is still known best to casual moviegoers for his on camera roles in movies such as Syriana and Ocean's Eleven.

Clooney will play a lonely Arctic scientist called Augustine who tries to make contact with an astronaut on board a spacecraft trying to return home in the post-apocalyptic tale. Past Smokehouse titles include Oscar-winning film Argo, Good Night and Good Luck (which picked up six Oscar nominations including Best Picture and a Best Director nom for Clooney), The Ides of March, Money Monster, August: Osage County, The American and Suburbicon.

The as-yet untitled adaptation marks George Clooney's first feature film for a streaming service. At its core, this is a story about human nature, and one that I know our global audiences will fall in love with, just like I did when I read it, ' Stuber stated.

When news of a catastrophic event arrives at his remote research center in the Arctic and the researchers are asked to evacuate, he insists on staying behind and soon embarks on a mission to save Mission Specialist Sullivan, who was aboard the Aether space ship when it crashed on its return flight from Jupiter. Shortly after the others have gone, Augustine discovers a mysterious child, Iris, and realizes that the airwaves have gone silent. In any case, this is one to keep an eye on.
