CORBIJN & CLOONEY COLLABORATE
Coming to a theatre near you this Fall, The American stars George Clooney and is Anton Corbijn’s follow up to his critically acclaimed movie, Control, about the life and death of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis. I ran into Anton recently while he was in New York during pre-screening sessions for The American.
Here’s an excerpt from his blog about the pre-screening process: “Survived the test screening in New Jersey, just about. We only had 4 walkouts which is not bad. If I had shown CONTROL there I think there would have been a lot more people heading for the door. As it is, I will continue editing, starting again today, Easter Monday.”
“Wish it was raining, makes it so much easier to go into the darkness of the edit suite. I’m going to look at the ending of the film and make sure it is understood by more people. No way I’m going to let you in on the actual ending so you will have to wait and see. Or wait longer and go and see the sequel, in 3D of course.”

The film’s trailer and title sequence uses the typeface Gotham. Of course! – it is called The American after all :)
‘I first met Anton Corbijn sometime around 1988, when I was working for Peter Saville (Associates) in London. Anton had asked Saville to design ‘Famouz’, Anton’s first book of photographs. Corbijn, at the time, was already well known for his work with musicians such as U2, Joy Division, Miles Davis and David Bowie, and was quickly becoming a legend. To have the opportunity to work on his book was indeed an honor. Yet, at the time, I had no idea Anton and I would forge a working relationship that would span a whole decade, a relationship that enabled me to work on record covers for Siouxsie Sioux’s side project The Creatures and of course Depeche Mode.’ View more …
