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 »
