apparently has a need to save the world.

Back in July, we reported that the No Country for Old Men star would be starring in 2012, a movie about the predicted ending of the Earth.

Now the actor is scheduled to save the population in Zombieland, a Columbia Pictures production. In the horror comedy, Woody will play Albuquerque, one of two survivors forced to bond while fighting off human-hungry zombies.

George Clooney

Burn After Reading‘s is currently in talks to partner with Jason Reitman, the Oscar-nominated director of Juno.

If negotiations go well, Clooney will star in Up in the Air, the big-screen version of Walter Kirn’s novel.

George would play a “career transition counselor,” someone who downsizes corporations for a living. In his personal life, Clooney’s character is someone who’s determined to accumulate a million frequent-flier miles.

Reitman - who wrote 2005’s Thank You For Smoking - is also behind Air‘s adaptation.
