Last year it was announced that a film adaptation of James Ellroy’s “White Jazz” was in the works with Joe Carnahan (“Smokin’ Aces”, “Narc”) at the helm.
George Clooney has also been attached to star as dirty cop Dave Klein in this sequel to “L.A. Confidential”.
The big question though was Guy Pearce. Pearce’s ‘Confidential’ character of Ed Exley appears in the ‘Jazz’ story.
Well out doing promo rounds for “Factory Girl”, Pearce told C.H.U.D. that “”It’s been mentioned to me, but I haven’t read the script yet.”
He then added “I ultimately don’t feel hugely compelled to revisit any character I’ve played before, really – but having said that it would depend on how it was realized, I guess.”
