Clooney, Jolie NOT Sinatra, Monroe

Within one day a wild casting rumour that caught fire online has been summarily shot down.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival over the weekend, author Andrew O’Hagan reportedly announced that George Clooney and Angelina Jolie would star as Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe in an adaptation of his most recent novel “The Life And Opinions Of Maf The Dog, And Of His Friend Marilyn Monroe.”

The book follows a two year period in the life of Monroe, as seen through the eyes of her pet Maltese terrier Maf which Sinatra gave her as a present.

Representatives for both actors however have denied the reports reports Risky Biz Blog, Jolie herself dismissing the report during interviews at the London premiere of “Salt”.
