Reese Witherspoon To Play Rosemary Clooney?
Reese Witherspoon won an Oscar for her portrayal as June Carter Cash in Walk the Line
According to In Touch magazine, "There is talk of a movie about George's aunt, the singer and actress Rosemary Clooney, and Reese (who won an Oscar for playing June Carter) has expressed interested in it." The magazine claims an insider revealed this in the February 26 edition.
The Cincinnati Enquirer said that Nick Clooney (Rosemary's brother and George's father) said he had heard about a possible movie back in 2002 but didn't know anything else about it. He called actor Miguel Ferrer (Rosemary's son), who hadn't heard about it either.
So there may be a movie and there may not. If it does come about, I can't think of anyone better to play her.
There was an earlier TV movie about Rosemary Clooney starring actress Sondra Locke. That movie aired in 1982 and was called Rosie: The Rosemary Clooney Story.
