DEBUNKED: Clooney to Star as Sinatra; Jolie as Marilyn Monroe?


UPDATE: The reps for Clooney and Jolie have denied they are involved with this project to Risky Business.

George Clooney and Angelina Jolie are planning to star as Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe in an adaptation of the upcoming novel, The Life and Opinions of Maf the Dog, and of His Friend, Marilyn Monroe, reports The Times.

The book, by Andrew O’Hagan and set for release this December, serves as a biopic of Monroe, told through the eyes of her Scottish maltese poodle, Mafia Honey (nicknamed Maf), given to her as a present by Sinatra.

O’Hagan announced the news at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. It is unknown if a director is currently attached.
