George Clooney Is A Florentine “Monster”

George Clooney is attached to star while Fox 2000 have acquired the film rights to serial-killer thriller “The Monster of Florence” reports Variety.

Based on the novel by Douglas Preston (“The Cabinet of Curiosities,” “The Relic”) and Mario Spezi, the story is a reconstruction of eight grisly double homicides believed to have been committed single-handedly between 1968 and 1985 in and around the Italian city.

“Valkyrie” co-writers Chris McQuarrie and Nathan Alexander are penning the script while Clooney, Grant Heslov, Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen are producing.

Tom Cruise was attached to produce and possibly star in the project at United Artists back in 2008.
