Ryan Gosling may work with George Clooney on Farragut North
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Last month we reported here, that George Clooney was trying to get some big names to work with him on his next project, FARRAGUT NORTH, that included: Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Chris Pine and Evan Rachel Wood. Today we find out that Ryan Gosling (of THE NOTEBOOK fame) is in talks to work with Mr. Clooney on this project. Gosling would play a communications director who works for a presidential candidate on campaign. His character will learn the ropes through “backstabbing and other dirty trickery of more seasoned rivals”. The film is an adaptation of a play by Beau Willimon and is supposed to begin filming next March.
As much as I love George Clooney, I haven’t been a huge fan of some of his past films (besides UP IN THE AIR). However, if he can gather the cast that he wants for this film, I think we will have something really special to look forward to.
