'The American' George Clooney is looking to outline the downfall of Enron and bring it to the big screen, possibly marking one of the most daring Hollywood productions in recent years.

Written by Lucy Prebble and directed by Rupert Goold, the musical 'Enron' took the London stage by storm. A quick peek at their website shows a parade of accolades and accomplishments making the story of the fraudulent company's downfall seem like a sure bet for Stateside fame. However, when the production hit Broadway, it flopped, suffering a $4 million loss and disinterest from critics and theater-goers.

Nevertheless, here comes Clooney, with the aid of producer Laura Ziskin, to make the stage production into a feature film.
