Actor George Clooney will put on the
director's hat for "Hack Attack." The film is based on a British
phone hacking scandal. Seems like George too is getting very much
inspired from real life incidents especially scandals and turning
the events into a movie is a good idea as well!
The project is an adaptation of journalist Nick Davies' book of
the same name about Rupert Murdoch's news empire celebrity phone
hacking scandal, which led to the closure of the News of the
"This has all the elements - lying, corruption, blackmail - at
the highest levels of government by the biggest newspaper in
London," Clooney said in a statement.
There are no details yet but Clooney and Grant Heslov will
co-produce the film under their Smokehouse banner for Sony. Its
shooting is scheduled to begin next year.
George Clooney will be next seen in Brad Bird's 'Tomorrowland'.
The actor is all set to work once again with the Coen brothers on
‘50s Hollywood pic 'Hail Caesar!'
