Hollywood 'Hit': Sean Penn plays Richard Clarke
Sean Penn will finally be able to criticize the Bush Administration on the big screen when he plays Richard Clarke in a film based on Clarke's 'inside-Washington' book, on how the Bush administration handled terrorist threats both before and after the Sept. 11th.
NewsMax's Hollywood Confidential, James Hirsen writes:
"Sean Penn has been widely reported to be on board to play Clarke. Vaughn is being talked about to fill the role of [the late FBI counter-terrorism agent John O'Neill]. Haggis is supervising screenwriter James Vanderbilt who's penning the second draft of the screenplay."
