George Clooney Is Monster Of Florence
George Clooney is all set to return to Italy after his role in The American. He’ll play Douglas Preston who co-wrote the true crime novel Monster Of Florence with Italian crime writer Mario Spezi.
The story concerns Preston’s move to Italy where he became obsessed with a series of unsolved murders from 30 years ago. The trail had long gone cold and all the suspects released so the Italian police didn’t take kindly to him sticking his nose where it wasn’t wanted and even locked him and Spezi up. But this didn’t deter the amateur sleuths and they eventually solved the murders.
Christopher McQuarrie (writer of The Usual Suspects and more recently the screenplay for The Tourist) will be writing the script with Nathan Alexander. No director lined up for this one but the premise is certainly intriguing. Watch this space for more info.
