Based on the memoirs of game show producer Chuck Barris, the story revolves around Barris’ other day job–as a government assassin, with the game show gig acting as a cover. However, in the course of juggling two lives, Barris (Rockwell) has to contend with two relationships–one with his unsuspecting girlfriend (Barrymore) who simply thinks he’s a producer and the other with a fellow CIA operative (Roberts).
Clooney will play a CIA recruiter who goes after Barris.
The film is being adapted by Being John Malkovich screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. A production start date has yet to be determined.
