DiCaprio, Clooney To Make Farragut North

Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney seem to have found a novel way around campaign finance restrictions. They’re collaborating on a film about the ill-fated Howard Dean campaign, with Leo playing Jay Carson, young, brash press secretary. Carson did that little thing for Dean and now is Hilary Clinton’s traveling press secretary. The film is based on Farragut North, a not-yet produced theatrical roman a clef by Beau Willimon, who also worked for Dean. So cozy. Clooney will play Joe Trippi. So much cheaper more creative than DiCaprio and Clooney having to write checks.
