Clooney leads and produces L.A. Confidential sequel

GeorgeClooney.jpgGeorge Clooney is producing and set to star in the sequel to L.A. Confidential, White Jazz. The film was announced at the end of October and Guy Pearce is in talks to return to his character.

Hollywood Reporter have the story:

"Jazz," which Clooney will produce with his Smokehouse producing partner Grant Heslov, will be directed by Joe Carnahan from a script by his brother Matthew Carnahan ("The Kingdom"). "Jazz" is the last volume of what is known as Ellroy's "L.A. quartet" of crime novels, which includes "L.A. Confidential," "The Big Nowhere" and "The Black Dahlia."

In "Jazz," Clooney will star as a corrupt police lieutenant assigned to a potentially explosive case for the Los Angeles Police Department during a time when the department is under investigation for corruption.

Well it certainly sounds strong, and we know that Clooney has the talent to carry off the dramatic role, will he work alongside Pearce, and is Pearce even coming back?
