George Clooney looks set to team up with brilliant Aaron Sorkin (Charlie Wilson's War, The West Wing) on the highly charged political film The Challenge. Flick will be based on the case of Salim Ahmed Hamdan, who was that wrong sort Osama Bin Laden's driver. Under legislation passed under the Bush administration, the likes of Hamdan could be held, and in some cases tortured, without trial. The film will not be an innocent/guilty scenario played out in a courtroom, but will instead concentrate on Navy lawyer Charles Swift and Georgetown University law professor Neal Katyal, who challenged the legitimacy of the whole thing. According to Empire, Clooney will produce; while he has also circled the role of Swift, and is pondering developing the project as a directorial vehicle. Sounds right up his street, and with a Sorkin script, how could this be bad?
