George Clooney Looks to Pine, Hoffman, and Giamatti for His Next Directorial Effort, Farragut North

Three years ago, George Clooney announced his intention to direct a big-screen adaptation of the off-Broadway play Farragut North, a political drama about campaign dirty tricks written by former Democratic political operative Beau Willimon.

Now it seems like Clooney is finally electing to do it: Vulture hears that he plans to start shooting this February, and a cast that includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, and possibly Chris Pine is coming together.

The story is too old to be commented.
