GALLOWAY: THE MOVIEGeorge Clooney as George Galloway?! Please, oh please let it not be.
MP in talks with film star Penn
By Craig Davidson
UNDER-FIRE MP George Galloway is in talks to have a Hollywood movie made about his life.
The Scot - who is facing claims that he took cash from Saddam Hussein - has met with US actor and director Sean Penn to discuss the project.
Galloway sidekick Ron McKay is also to feature in the film,which documents their early days in Dundee through to their infamous meetings with the Iraqi dictator.
Film chiefs hope to cash in on Galloway's popularity since he blasted the US Senate over Iraq.
McKay, a writer who shares a flat with Galloway in London, said "Sean Penn took us to his mansion and we all had a good laugh - George and Sean really hit it off.
"I have suggested Danny de Vito plays George and George Clooney plays me. I have no idea how serious it is though - we're both a bit busy with other things."
