George Clooney takes on Enron
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
I think it’s safe to say that Geroge Clooney marches to the beat of his own drum and will take on any project that interests him no matter how controversial or unpopular it may be. This week he has decided to take the popular British play ENRON and bring it to the big screen. He will definitely produce the film but he may also direct and star in the adaptation. Even though this is a British production, the only person following the play to the big screen is playwright Lucy Prebble who will be penning the screenplay. Since Mr. Clooney is so busy this upcoming year, there’s a good chance that this will not begin shooting until 2012 unless he finds another actor to take the lead.
Although I like George Clooney (who doesn’t), I don’t know if I want to see a film about the debacle that was Enron. It was such a tragic story and makes corporate America look even worse than it is, oh yeah, and we’re still in a recession so this will probably not help lift spirits.
