LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Moviegoers won't to have wait long to see the next film from Joel and Ethan Coen, the Oscar-winning brothers behind "No Country For Old Men."

Their next project, the dark espionage comedy "Burn After Reading," will be released September 12 via Focus Features, the studio said Monday. The cast includes George Clooney, John Malkovich, Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, and Frances McDormand, Joel Coen's wife.

The Coens last month won the best picture, directing and adapted screenplay Oscars for "No Country For Old Men." The Miramax Films/Paramount Vantage co-production is the most commercially successful of their career, with domestic ticket sales of $69.7 million to date.
