Focus Features will release Joel and Ethan Coen's upcoming comedy Burn After Reading on Sept 12.

The dating gives the film prime positioning for premieres at the Venice and Toronto film festivals.

George Clooney, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt and Tilda Swinton star in the story of an ousted CIA agent who loses his unpublished memoirs. Richard Jenkins also stars.

The Coens are producing and Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are serving as executive producers with Robert Graf.
