It's still not clear what the total fallout will be from Rupert Murdoch's News of the World phone-hacking scandal. A reckoning for News Corp? Some serious jail time for key players? The complete dismantling of England's tabloid industry? One thing has become abundantly clear, though: This is going to make a fantastic movie. Who should play whom, and who should write and direct? Should this be a Social Network reunion for Sorkin and Fincher? The perfect ethics lesson for George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh to sink their teeth into? And who can project the appropriate growliness of Murdoch? What about Rebekah Brooks?
