George Clooney got his second Oscar this year, winning Best Picture as the producer of Argo. That seems to have cause him to have a look through the work of journalist Joshua Bearman, who wrote the article Argo is based on.
Now The Wrap reports that Clooney and producing partner Grant Heslov are planning a film based on Bearman’s upcoming article about the Coronado Club. Clooney is thinking about directing the project himself, although that’s not been confirmed yet.
Not too much is known about the film, although Coronado is the name of a resort city in Southern California and the story is about a group of young people who are used to smuggle drugs. There’s no news on who will script the adaptation, although Sony Pictures is in talks to finance the project.
Clooney is currently shooting The Monuments Men, so he probably won’t get around to this one for a while yet.
