Filming is currently underway on George Clooney’s The Ides of March and the first set photos have surfaced. Clooney directs and stars in the political drama based on the play Farragut North, which centers on the backdoor politics of a presidential primary campaign. Clooney stars alongside an all-star cast which includes Ryan Gosling, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Evan Rachel Wood, Jeffrey Wright and The Social Network’s Max Minghella.
Sony recently acquired the rights to the film and is planning an award-season limited run this December to be followed by a wide release in January 2012. Hit the jump to check out the set photos of Clooney, Gosling and Minghella filming on Oxford’s campus.
Head over to The Oxford Press to check out many, many more photos from the set.
