Production[edit]

It was announced in September 2021 that Jon Watts would write and direct an untitled thriller film, with George Clooney and Brad Pitt starring and producing.[6] Apple TV+ acquired the rights to the film after winning a studio bidding war against studios including Sony Pictures (which would later take over theatrical distribution rights), Lionsgate, Annapurna Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Universal Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures, Netflix and Amazon Studios (now called Amazon MGM Studios).[7] Production began in New York City in January 2023, with Amy Ryan joining the cast.[8] Larkin Seiple serves as cinematographer.[9][10] In February, Austin Abrams and Poorna Jagannathan were added to the cast.[11][12]

Principal photography began in early January 2023 in New York City.[13] Clooney and Pitt filmed scenes in Harlem and Chinatown.[14][15] Filming was suspended in July 2023 due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike.[16]

Wolfs is the first film starring both Clooney and Pitt in 16 years, since Burn After Reading (2008).[17]

Release[edit]

Following their partnership on Napoleon, Apple entered another agreement with Sony Pictures Releasing to distribute the film in cinemas.[18] That same month, it was scheduled to be released in the United States on September 20, 2024.[19]
