Dustin Hoffman has reportedly signed up to star in Clemente, according to a Twitter update from Production Weekly. It’s based on a script by Reuben Gonzalez and is to be directed by Ocean Thirteen’s very own Andy Garcia.
Cinema Blend don’t know what it’s about, and I don’t neither at present. Gonzalez’s previous form includes the (apparently awful) Once Upon a Wedding plus one directorial effort in the shape of Mambo Cafe with Danny Aiello.
Andy Garcia has stepped behind the camera in the past, directing himself in 2005’s The Lost City. Not much more to say on that except we all know about Hoffman and he’s pretty much always reliable.
The only guess I’ll put forward is a possible biopic of Italian painter Francesco Clemente.
