Uh-oh! Drama!

George Clooney is reportedly ready to take the directorial reigns once again and adapt the smash British play Enron into a feature film, but the original team behind the stage version, including director Rupert Goold, are allegedly unhappy that they will not be involved!

According to sources, the only person involved from the original group is playwright Lucy Prebble, who has been tapped to adapt the work to the big screen, leaving many infuriated!

Philip Hedley, former director of the Theatre Royal Stratford East, says:

"It's a great shame that the original talent hasn't been able to follow through, to put on to film what they've originally created. Everything works on celebrity and famous names."

However, producer Laura Ziskin, has retaliated:

"Once you've done something… you've done it. Let that stand on its own."

She also went on to explain that "this is an American story," and the film will have its own take on the material while staying true to the original.

Inneresting! We're kind of on the fence about this!

We trust Clooney's judgment, and think that the choice to re-work it from the American standpoint is a valid one, but of course, there's always the mentality that if it's not broken, why try and fix it?

What do U think?? Should Enron be adapted, or left as is??

    It is interesting not inneresting. No wonder people do not know how to spell between you and texting I see the next generation as dumbed down.

    It's kinda ironic.
    George Clooney spent a small fortune getting his teeth capped to conform with the Hollywood standard, but if you look at recent photos of him, he smiles with a closed mouth.
    Is George self-conscious about his pretty white chompers now?
    I always thought his teeth looked fine the way they were.
