George Clooney Picks New Movie
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
The incomparable George Clooney looks set to star in the upcoming Alexander Payne directed film THE DESCENDANTS. The film is a family “dramedy” about a wealthy man that drags his daughters with him as he searches for his wife’s lover. The film was written by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash and based off the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings.
I love the idea of this and Clooney can do just about anything. The trick to this movie is going to be balancing the fine line between too serious and too light-hearted. But Payne has proven to be a capable director with films like ABOUT SCHMIDT and SIDEWAYS.
