Clooney Has Chosen His Next Directing Project

4 September 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With the recent controversy surrounding a bunch of celebrities having their phones hacked, unleashing a wave of risqué pictures- an event that's been classily nicknamed The Fappening- people might have forgotten about a much more tumultuous phone hacking scandal. In 2011, British newspaper "News of The World" closed it's doors after 168 years of circulation. Why? Because it was discovered that the paper's owner had been part of a phone hacking/tapping campaign that shook the nation to its core. The owner in question, News Corp's Rupert Murdoch, had overseen the hacking of the confidential voicemails and e-mails of Britain's most prominent elected officials, celebrities, and citizens.

Journalist Nick Davies, who spent 6 years investigating News Corp, as well as its subsidiary News International, released a tell-all book in July titled Hack Attack: The Inside Story of How The Truth Caught Up With Rupert Murdoch. That book, which tells a dark tale of corruption, »

George Clooney to Direct Movie Based on UK Phone Hacking Scandal

4 September 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

George Clooney has tackled a variety of projects as a director, including the world of American politics in The Ides of March and World War II in this year’s The Monuments Men. His next movie could be the most interesting yet though as he looks set to adapt journalist Nick Davies’ book Hack Attack.

It chronicles the scandal which surrounded Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation empire in 2011 when it was revealed that the likes of the News of the World had hacked the voicemails of celebrities, politicians and families whose loved one had been killed in Iraq War or were victims of various crimes.

The movie is set to be released through Sony Pictures, and Davies’ book investigated News Corp’s actions over a period of six years, right up until the point they were exposed to the public and authorities.

George Clooney to Direct 'Hack Attack' Based on UK Phone Hacking Scandal

4 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

George Clooney has decided on his next directorial effort, this one an adaptation of Nick Davies' "Hack Attack: The Inside Story of How the Truth Caught Up With Rupert Murdoch" exploring the 2011 British phone-hacking scandal surrounding Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. which ended in the shuttering of "The News of the World" after 168 years of publication. Quoted by The Hollywood Reporter, Clooney said, "This has all the elements -- lying, corruption, blackmail -- at the highest levels of government by the biggest newspaper in London, and the fact that it's true is the best part. Nick is a brave and stubborn reporter and we consider it an honor to put his book to film." It will be interesting to see how Clooney approaches the project. As of now there's no word on who will write the screenplay, though I could assume it will be Clooney and frequent writing partner »

George Clooney Going After Rupert Murdoch In Controversial New Drama

4 September 2014 6:59 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If there are two subjects George Clooney loves to make films about, they're journalism and politics. He's handled both subjects on their own respectively in Good Night, And Good Luck. and The Ides Of March, but his next project sounds like an interesting blend between both of those projects. If you take the subject matter of the first film and cross it with the thrilling/darker aspects of the second film, then you'll have what looks to be Clooney's next directorial effort, Hack Attack. Entertainment Weekly broke the story on the follow up to Clooney's tepidly received The Monuments Men. While some criticized the World War II drama as too much of a feel good throwback, Hack Attack is the complete opposite, as George Clooney is promising all of the elements you'd expect in a modern thriller in his next film, including: "...lying, corruption, blackmail . at the highest levels of »

Venice – Prominent Dubai-based independent Middle East film distributor, Front Row Filmed Entertainment has sealed a deal with iTunes under which it will act as an aggregator for independent Arabic and Bollywood distribution companies who aim to make their titles available across the Middle East and also worldwide.

George Clooney To Direct UK Tabloid Scandal Hack Attack

3 September 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

George Clooney’s directorial efforts are divisive to say the least. For every The Ides Of March, there’s a flaccid schmaltz fest like The Monuments Men. While his upcoming roster of projects is hectic, including the Coens’ Hail Caesar (nothing to do with tyrannical simians) and production duties on Our Brand Is Crisis and Pioneer, he’s announced his next directing gig: Hack Attack.

Based on the book Hack Attack, by journalist Nick Davies, the drama will centre around the recent phone hacking scandal in the UK. For those unaware of the story – Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid behemoth, News Of The World, came under fire when it was revealed that many of the paper’s reporters had illegally tapped the phones of celebrities (Hugh Grant for one), politicians and even a bunch of regular joes. The subsequent court case and inquiry saw many of the Notw’s major players »

George Clooney To Direct Drama 'Hack Attack' About U.K. Tabloid Phone Hacking Scandal

3 September 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

George Clooney's directorial career so far has been somewhat hit and miss. "Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind"? Interesting, but very flawed. "Good Night And Good Luck?" Cracking, and Oscar-nominated for its troubles. "Leatherheads?" More or less a complete washout. "The Ides Of March?" A solid political drama. "Monuments Men?" Disappointing. It's almost like he's obeying the "Star Trek" odd/even rule, and that means we're due for a good one next time around. And the megastar has chosen what it'll be. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Clooney's planning to direct "Hack Attack," an adaptation of journalist Nick Davies' book about the News Of The World hacking scandal. In case you missed it, the case saw the revelation that journalists at the News Of The World, a 168-year-old British tabloid owned by Rupert Murdoch, had been illegally hacking into the voicemails of politicians, celebrities and even murder victims »

Gordon Green To Direct Bullock In ‘Our Brand In Crisis’

24 August 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green will reportedly direct Gravity actress Sandra Bullock in Our Brand In Crisis.

Based on the 2005 documentary of the same name, the story will focus on the strategies of American political campaigns and how effective they are in the deeply religious, deeply political South.

George Clooney and his business partner Grant Heslov will co-produce alongside Bullock under their Smokehouse Pictures company banner. With the film in early pre-production not much else is known about the project at this time.

Clooney and co. directed and produced fellow political drama The Ides Of March back in 2012. We imagine Our Brand In Crisis will perform along the same lines, but with Gordon Green attached who knows what will happen.

TriStar Acquires Jodie Foster’s Money Monster

26 July 2014 5:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In terms of performers-turned-filmmakers, they don’t come much bigger than Jodie Foster and George Clooney. Between them, they are responsible for some of the more interesting and satisfying TV and film projects of the last few years – from episodes of Orange Is The New Black and House Of Cards (Foster), to movies like Good Night And Good Luck and The Ides Of March (Clooney). The prospect of these two talents collaborating is an exciting one, to say the least – so it comes as no surprise that Money Monster is already heading straight for ‘highly anticipated’ status, with studios clambering for a piece of the action. TriStar now seems to have won that battle, with a financing package of $30 million.
