Leo Joins George for Farragut North


When last we heard about Farragut North, we knew the following things:

  • It was a politically charged drama coming to Broadway under the direction of Mike Nichols.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal is starring in the stage version.
  • George Clooney and Matt Damon were reportedly buying up the film rights.

Now, there's new news about the project:

  • Clooney will direct the film version.
  • Leonardo DiCaprio, not Jake Gyllenhaal, will apparently take on the role of the protagonist, a "young communications director who works for a fast-rising presidential candidate."
  • Still no word on whether Clooney will also star in the film version, but looking at these two side by side like this, I certainly hope he does.

haha...the only reason i clicked on this link is because i automatically knew it was a D.C. based film since Farragut North is the metro (subway) stop for K St., which is where all the lobbyists work.
