George Clooney & Angelina Jolie To Play Frank Sinatra & Marilyn Monroe?

George Clooney & Angelina Jolie to play two of the world’s most famous icons in movie and pop culture ? according to a article posted at ThePlaylist writer  Andrew O’Hagan who is the author of  The Life And Opinions Of Maf The Dog, And Of His Friend Marilyn Monroe told playlist at the Edinburgh international book festivalthat Clooney & Jolie are to bring Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Monroe back to the big screen in a adaption of his book.

OHagan further revealed that the movie will “will shortly go into production” and also went onto to joke “not yet known who will be playing Maf the dog.” I’m sure a few jaws dropped when this was annouced which to many could seen as a fantasy line-up so its suggested until another source comes out with this story, the idea of Clooney and Jolie sharing some screen time should be taken light-heartedly though an movie version of the book sounds more favourable. You can see Clooney as old blue eye, well he has played one of Sinatra characters 3 times in the past as Daniel Ocean in Ocena’s 11 trilogy and both have that elegent saurve edge of coolness. Jole as Monroe you could see happening as well and it would n’t be a shock seeing Jolie as a blonde she’s dont it before especially with Salt which is out this wednesday but as personality of Monroe well that could be a problem.

George Clooney will next seen on our movie screens with The American (November 26th) with The Descendents coming up for him after that as for Jolie her movies are a little bit sketchy at the moment with really only The Tourist with Johnny Depp the only confirmed movie with Cleopatra:The Life, Maleficent and a unamed Kay Scarpetta movie other possible projects.

check out the books offical synopsis:

In November 1960, Frank Sinatra gave Marilyn Monroe a dog. His name was Maf. He had an instinct for the twentieth century. For politics. For psychoanalysis. For literature. For interior decoration. This is his story.

Maf the dog was with Marilyn for the last two years of her life. Not only a picaresque hero himself, he was also a scholar of the adventuring rogue in literature and art, witnessing the rise of America’s new liberalism, civil rights, the space race, the New York critics, and was Marilyn Monroe’s constant companion.

The story of Maf the dog is a hilarious and highly original peek into the life of a complex canine hero – he was very much a real historical figure, with his license and photographs sold at auction along with Marilyn’s other person affects. Through the eyes of Maf we’re provided with an insight into the life of Monroe herself, and a fascinating take on one of the most extraordinary periods of the twentieth century.
