Clooney previously talked to Deadline about his upcoming rom-com Ticket to Paradise, in which he and Julia Roberts play a divorced couple who travel to Bali to stop their daughter from getting married.

Directed by Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again filmmaker Ol Parker, the movie also stars Dever and Billie Lourd.

Clooney said the movie, which was still in production as of January, is "something special" and "sort of an old-fashioned film."

"This guy named Ol Parker is a really wonderful writer and director, and he wrote us a script, and I haven't done a romantic comedy really since [1996's] One Fine Day, and more than that. I've done some sort of snarky ones, you know, and in this one Julia and I just get to be mean to each other in the funniest way," said Clooney.

"The minute I read it I called Julia, and I said, 'Did you get this?' and she said, 'Yeah,' and I said 'Are you going to do it?' and she goes 'Are you going to do it? and I said, 'Yeah, if you do it,' " the two-time Academy Award winner continued. "So it was just one of those very lucky things."

Pals Clooney and Roberts, 54, previously worked together on Ocean's Eleven (2001) and 2016's Money Monster.

"It's going great, man. We're having the time of our lives," Clooney said. "Julia is just fantastic in it, and this wonderful actor named Lucas Bravo, who's just absolutely the funniest thing in the movie, and you know, Billie Lourd and Kaitlyn Dever."

He added, "It's just a really fun, fun, fun cast all the way around. We're having a great time."
