THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS is a dark comedy inspired by a real life story you will hardly believe is true.
Reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) is in search of his next big story when he encounters Lyn Cassady (George Clooney) who claims to be part of "The New Earth Army", an experimental US Army unit. According to Cassady, a legion of psychic warriors with unparalleled powers can read the enemy's thoughts, pass through solid walls, and even kill a goat simply by staring at it.
Now, the program's founder, Bill Django (Jeff Bridges), has gone missing and Cassady's mission is to find him. Intrigued by his new acquaintance's far-fetched stories, Bob impulsively decides to accompany him on the search.
Inspired by Jon Ronson's bestselling book, this is an eye-opening and hilarious comedy led by an all-star cast. Starring George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor and Kevin Spacey, THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS is directed by Grant Heslov and produced by George Clooney, Grant Heslov and Paul Lister. The screenplay is by Peter Straughan.
