A publicist for actor George Clooney confirms that former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean could be depicted in a movie featuring Clooney and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Clooney publicist Stan Rosenfield says the movie depicting Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign is in development, but could be years from release.
Vermont Film Commission executive director Joe Bookchin says he is hoping to persuade the studio, Warner Bros., to film significant parts of the movie in Vermont. Dean’s campaign was headquartered in Burlington.
He says the movie could bring millions of dollars of economic activity into the state.
