George Clooney To Direct ‘Hack Attack”

GEORGE CLOONEY TO DIRECT ‘HACK ATTACK”

George Clooney is set to direct an adaptation of the book “Hack Attack” by Guardian journalist Nick Davies. The book is an account of Davies’ investigation into Rupert Murdoch’s media empire which uncovered the phone-hacking scandal that rocked the British establishment and resulted in the closure of the News of the World.

“This has all the elements – lying, corruption, blackmail – at the highest levels of government by the biggest newspaper in London,” Clooney said. “And the fact that it’s true is the best part. Nick is a brave and stubborn reporter and we consider it an honor to put his book to film.”
“With “Hack Attack,” George will explore the dark side of a business where all of the rules of journalism are broken in the race for an easy and ever-larger payday.” Shooting is scheduled to begin next year.
