George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh will produce "Ocean Eleven" buddy Don Cheadle’s directorial debut. "Tishomingo Blues", based on the book by Elmore Leonard, is about a high diver working for a Mississippi casino who witnesses a mob murder from 80 feet in the air. Things get complicated when a con artist-turned-drug runner, a corrupt sheriff, an honest policeman and a reenactment of a famous Civil War battle intrude upon the precedings. Variety says Cheadle will take a role in the film.
