George Clooney considers Alexander Payne's Descendants

George Clooney is busy. Not only is he saving the world ... OK, that's a slight exaggeration, but he also has tons of films coming out and it's showing signs of slowing down. Now comes word from Variety that Clooney is considering the lead in the Alexander Payne family dramedy The Descendants.

You can see him before that in The Men Who Stare as Goats this Friday (Nov. 6) and the upcoming films Fantastic Mr. Fox and Up in the Air.

He's also currently shooting The American, a thriller directed by Anton Corbijn.

But now back to Descendants ... it's a film about a wealthy man who takes his two daughters on a search for his wife's lover in hopes of keeping the family together.

The screenplay is written by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash and based on Kaui Hart Hemmings' debut novel of the same name.

This is Payne's first film since Sideways in 2004.
