The Fight Club hunk reprises his role as sexy conman Rusty Ryan in the George Clooney-starring thriller, and the Chicago Oscar-winner is his sweetheart Isabel Lahiri. But movie bosses have been left scratching their heads after seeing their scenes together, which allegedly fail to set the screen alight.

"Producers are trying to work out ways of injecting a bit of sizzle into their scenes."
