George Clooney is to direct a new movie based on the News International phone hacking scandal.
The upcoming film has been inspired by the book 'Hack Attack' by Nick Davies, who investigated the controversy that led to the closure of the News of the World.
Clooney, who is also producing the film alongside Grant Heslov and Michael De Luca, said: ''This has all the elements - lying, corruption, blackmail - at the highest levels of government by the biggest newspaper in London.
