Cheadle and Soderbergh
George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh have hired writer Milo Addica, currently nominated for an Oscar for MONSTER'S BALL, to write an untitled revenge thriller for Don Cheadle to direct and possibly star in. The film is based on a concept by Soderbergh and sounds like a more masculine version of DOUBLE JEOPARDY. A man is wrongly imprisoned and upon his release he sets out to murder the man who framed him. Cheadle will make his directorial debut on TISHOMINGO BLUES based on the novel by Elmore Leonard (read more about that film from our news archives).
