Clooney on the set of his new film ( he's directing )

George Clooney and Ryan Golsing on the Miami set of their new film Ides Of March, based on the play Farragut North that was written by Beau Willimon, loosely based on the 2004 Democratic primary campaign of Howard Dean. The script was awarded the 2005 Dayton Playhouse FutureFest award.

The film is billed as "a classic tale of hubris set against a contemporary landscape — about the lust for power and the costs one will endure to achieve it." It is titled after Farragut North, a Washington Metro station in Washington, D.C., on the Red Line. Farragut North serves downtown Washington and is located just north of Farragut Square near Connecticut Avenue. Willimon chose the name as the station is located in the center of the lobbyist district.

This will be Clooney's third time in the directing chair. The film also stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood and Jeffrey Wright. It will be released sometime next year.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
