George Clooney Options An Innocent Man

George Clooney’s attached himself to a new film – but no, he’s not acting. As we reported last week, his schedule on that front is well and truly full.

Instead, he and producing partner Grant Heslov have stumped up the cash – with a little help from Warner Independent Pictures - to buy the rights to John Grisham’s non-fiction book The Innocent Man: Murder And Injustice In A Small Town.

Clooney and Heslov will produce the film, which Grisham will also be involved in. It’s the first Grisham adaptation to trundle along in a while, since the author has been trying to change the way he options his books – skipping the hefty paydays of old for more collaborative control and better versions of his novels. And, with his name still carrying plenty of clout, there are several other adaptations from a while back still bubbling in development

There’s no writer or director attached to An Innocent Man yet.
