Fresh off their Oscar wins for producing Argo, it appears that producers George Clooney and Grant Heslov are zeroing in on yet another project from the same source writer.  Joshuah Bearman wrote the 2007 Wired article that was adapted into the screenplay for Argo, and now The Wrap reports that Clooney and Heslov are planning to produce an adaptation of Bearman’s upcoming article “Coronado High.”  As the article has yet to be published, further details are fairly thin.  The story is said to involve “a group of teenagers who are used to smuggle drugs in Coronado, California,” which is a wealthy resort city near San Diego.

Sony Pictures is in talks to acquire the project, and it is being planned as a potential directing vehicle for Clooney.  The multitalented Clooney is currently directing the WWII film Monuments Men, which he co-wrote with Heslov and also stars in.  That film is set for release this December.
