Clooney to direct DiCaprio in “Farragut North” movieNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:01 am ICT by admin
The Appian Way-Smoke House deal was made at Warner Bros., where both the production houses have first-look deals.
Willimon will pen the script for the movie, but it is as yet unclear whether Clooney will also star in it, reports Variety.
The movie revolves around a young communications director working for a fast-rising presidential candidate.
During the course of the campaign, the idealistic young man falls prey to the backstabbing and other dirty trickery of seasoned rivals.
Timing of the screen version of the play hasn’t been determined.
The play will be hitting Broadway next year, with Mike Nichols reportedly in line to direct Jake Gyllenhaal in the thesp’s Broadway debut. (ANI)
