Clooney will direct and star in The Ides of March, the adaptation of the acclaimed play Farragut North by Beau Willimon. Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood costar.
Gosling takes the role that DiCaprio originally intended to play, a press spokesman for a candidate running in the presidential primary for the Democratic Party ticket. Clooney will play the candidate, a state governor with White House aspirations.
Willimon based the play on his own experiences on the campaign trail with Howard Dean in 2004. In the play, the press agent falls prey to backroom politics, the manipulations of veteran political operatives and the seduction of a young intern. Giamatti plays a rival campaign manager, Tomei plays a reporter for the New York Times, and Wood plays an intern for the campaign.

Clooney has been involved in making some amazing movies for quite some time now, and this one seems no different. Intriguing premise, great starcast and a frakking incredible title, if I may say so. Count me in!
