"The $700 Billion Man," a 2009 Washington Post article about Neel Kashkari — a key player in the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program bank bailout who apparently left Washington, D.C., for a cabin in California after making his big moves — is being adapted for the screen by George Clooney's Smoke House company, and Clooney himself might direct. Hope it's like Leatherheads! [Variety]
