Turns out that while he did put up $700,000 to get the project started a whole lot more came from other sources. Something tells me Clooney made more than $700,000 from Nestle.
I imagine it'd take more than 700 Gs to get an A-lister like Clooney to sell coffee.

Yes indeed. I'm thinking the $700,000 was probably ten or fifteen percent of his paycheck. Maybe a quarter, but I doubt it.

I don't think he'd pick up the phone for 700Gs.

SWAT season 3 is finally on Hulu. I can't believe how comically stupid these NVGs look.

Buried in the story, there's an adaptation of Without Remorse coming out. I know they've been kicking around an adaptation since the nineties. I would think it'd be a lot easier if you took John Clark out of the equation and made it a standalone, but it looks like this will be set in present day if they're making both this and Rainbow Six with Michael B. Jordan as Clark.

And coincidentally on the very same day, Ubisoft announced they're removing the Predator mission from Ghost Recon Wildlands.
