Kramer's Widow Plans Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Sequel

The widow of the late STANLEY KRAMER is bringing the director's cult comedy IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD back to the big screen, and she wants GEORGE CLOONEY and DONALD TRUMP to join the existing cast members from the 1963 original in the new film. KAREN SHARPE KRAMER has joined forces with BOBBY producer ED BASS to shape a sequel to the hit movie after discovering just how popular her late husband's film still is during a 40th anniversary tour in 2003. Stars like MICKEY ROONEY, CARL REINER and JERRY LEWIS, who starred in the original, have been urging her to revisit the masterpiece for years, and now she's ready to plan a sequel. Kramer insists she'll pay tribute to the comics from the original, who have since passed away, by featuring clips of them in the new movie - and she wants the new movie to also feature US cultural icons like former President BILL CLINTON and property tycoon DONALD TRUMP. Kramer is also hoping to persuade Reiner's OCEAN'S ELEVEN castmates Clooney and BRAD PITT to join the star-studded sequel line-up. She says, "I presented George with the Stanley Kramer Award for GOOD NIGHT + GOOD LUCK in 2006 and he's a big fan of my husband's work. I'd like to find him just the right role in the sequel. "We won't be doing this for the money, but for the spirit, so I'm hoping that, like Bobby, a number of stars will want to play a part."
