Clooney and Dicaprio To Team up For ‘Farragut North’

george-clooney.jpgTwo of Hollywood’s biggest stars (who are also known for the strong political beliefs) are teaming up to film a political thriller.  George Clooney is slated to direct the film which Leonardo Dicaprio will star in, and it will loosely be based on the upcoming Broadway play (to be directed by Mike Nichols) on Howard Dean’s 2004 Presidental election campaign.

Yahoo News Gives Us This:

Named after the Washington Metro station located near many lobbyists’ offices, the play follows a young, idealistic communications director who works for an inspiring, though unorthodox, presidential candidate. During the campaign, his career is done in by more seasoned politicos who thrive on poisonous partisan politics, dirty tricks and back-stabbing.

This is odd. Filming an adaptation to a play that hasn’t even opened yet?  Although, when you have George Clooney directing (and most likely putting himself in the film like he usually does in his films) and having Leonardo Dicaprio headlining the film, this film is pretty much already guaranteed to be nominated for Golden Globes and Oscars….(The “politics” of Hollywood. :P)

  1. Haha…

    And yes, let’s all get our political info from Hollywood.

    Anyway, Clooney is a good guy. Got to meet him while he was in town filming K Street, a few years back. I worked in that area/Metro stop for 5 years…it’s pretty lame and relatively dead from 7pm-7am…boo!!

    This movie should be interesting and 1/2 way intelligent, I’ll check it out!

  2. Okay movie aside, everybody in America and effected by America’s politics should have “STRONG POLITICAL BELIEFS”. If America continues to go in the direction that it is heading then everybody WILL be effected negatively.
