Cinematical has received exclusive images of the official standee for Leatherheads, the upcoming football comedy directed by and starring George Clooney. This is Clooney's third feature behind the camera, and his first straight-up comedy as a director, so it should be interesting to see what he does with a supporting cast that includes Renée Zellweger and everyone's favorite office co-worker, John Krasinski.
Leatherheads, which is being coined as a sports-oriented romantic comedy set against the formation of professional football in the 1920s, stars Clooney as the owner of a failing team who, in an attempt to turn things around, convinces former college football star and decorated war hero Carter Rutherford (Krasinski) to join the team. And when cub reporter Lexie Littleton (Zellweger) enters the equation, both men will find it hard to keep their eyes on the ball and off of her. Check out our gallery featuring close-ups of all three images (and a larger version of the standee) below. Leatherheads is due to touch down in theaters on April 4, 2008.
