Guy Ritchie might be directing a remake of the cross country car race film Cannonball Run, starting this fall. And he wants George Clooney to play the Burt Reynolds part.
Right now this is just a rumor. I heard from an agency source that this was happening, but I checked with a source close to the Guy Ritchie camp and was told this was the first they heard of it. The idea of casting Clooney in the Burt role is both too obvious and makes this seem like a false rumor but also too obvious and makes this seem like something that would be in the planning stages right now at a major studio.
