George Clooney, Angelina Jolie linked to “Maf the Dog” adaptation


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: George Clooney as Old Blue Eyes? Angelina Jolie as America’s first sex symbol? This could happen if a statement uttered by author Andrew O’Hagan comes to pass.

While speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival last weekend, O’Hagan told the crowd that a film adaptation on his novel “The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of his friend Marilyn Monroe” will go into production shortly with Clooney playing Frank Sinatra and Jolie playing Monroe. The news was part of a column on EdBookFest.co.uk. There’s even a trailer for the book’s release over on The Playlist.

While we’d love to see both actors in these respective roles, we’re not exactly lining up to buy tickets just yet. Clooney has eight titles in development, according to IMDB, and “Maf the Dog” ain’t one of them. Ditto for Jolie, who is attached to a Cleopatra biopic that would prevent her from walking O’Hagan’s “Dog.”

Since we don’t really know the context of the author’s comments, this probably qualifies as his dream scenario for casting. But any project that links two superpowers like Clooney and Jolie has to be considered, and I would like to see them collaborate on something offbeat such as this.
