The Tender Bar (Starring) – TBD (In Production)
Despite being two of the biggest names in Hollywood, Ben Affleck and George Clooney haven’t worked together all that much over the years, with their biggest project being Argo, in which Clooney served as a co-producer to the Affleck-directed Oscar winner. That recently changed with the announcement of The Tender Bar, which will be released by Amazon Studios at some point in the near future with Affleck starring and Clooney directing.
Based on J.R. Moehringer’s memoir of the same name, The Tender Bar follows Tye Sheridan’s version of the author who turns to his Uncle Charlie (Affleck) as a father figure with his own dad nowhere to be seen. Although his mother (Lily Rabe) and grandfather (Christopher Lloyd) are very much in the picture, J.R. takes to Charlie and the patrons of the dive where he tends bar.
