George Clooney and Grant Heslov's production company Smoke House Pictures is developing a film about the Wall Street bailout, based on the 2009 Washington Post article "The $700 Billion Man."  Said man is Neel Kashkari, the steward of $700 billion set aside for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (Tarp) in 2008 to bail out failing banks following economic collapse.  The experience wrecked Kashkari.  He resigned after 7 months in Washington, D.C. and moved to a remote cabin in Northern California. According to Variety, Clooney is considering The $700 Billion Man as a possible directing vehicle.  Zach Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) will write the script.  Read more about the story after the jump. The Washington Post article by Laura Blemenfeld picks up when Kashkari is six months into what he refers to as a "Washington detox" program.  His role in the federal bailout is told in retrospect as a brand of war story.  I wonder »
