AN ESSEX girl has set out on an unprecedented mission to bring every woman's dream of dating gorgeous George Clooney to the big screen - and they want everyone to get involved.
Hornchurch-born filmmaker Nadia Jordan and her producing partner Hayley Nolan have launched an appeal for George Clooney fans around the world to take part in the Hollywood production, from becoming an executive movie producer to scoring a cameo role in the film Looking For George Clooney.
After moving to Hollywood, producer Ms Jordan, who has previously worked for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky, dreamed up the story of Poppy, a bored housewife whose marriage has broken down but instead of going in search of herself she goes in search of her dream man, George Clooney.
Nadia then enlisted West End playwright Hayley Nolan to bring the story and characters to life and write the film script. Not only that but this multi-talented duo will also star in the film, entitled Looking for George Clooney with Nadia as kooky heroine Poppy and Hayley playing her LA therapist Dr Eve Carter.
Trailer Clooney fans can watch the duo star in the trailer for the film on movie funding website IndieGoGo.com which allows members of the public to help fund films they want to see get made.
Nadia said: We both come from a strong acting background Hayley wrote and starred in West End's Credit Crunch: The Musical and Glee viral Sue Sylvester's Daughter and I've performed on stage and in films in London, New York and LA, so it made perfect sense for Hayley to write the roles for us.
And if it means I get to fall in love with George Clooney on screen then even better. In a trailer for their movie on crowd funding website indiegogo.com, scriptwriter Hayley Nolan said of writing the film I related to the story immediately...
I mean I've had many a breakdown at not being able to date George Clooney.
Now Nadia and Hayley are appealing to cinema goers around the world to get involved and pledge sponsorship to the production of the film and receive a variety of amazing perks in return.
These include becoming an executive producer on the film to invites to cast movie screenings in Hollywood and London.
Screenwriter Hayley will even create a guest cameo role for a few lucky Clooney fans to appear in the movie themselves.
The British filmmaker duo are following in the footsteps of Hollywood A-Listers such as movie star James Franco, Scrubs star Zach Braff and Veronica Mars' Kristen Bell who have all turned to crowd funding websites to fund their independent films. This means cinema goers can get involved in the making of the films they want to see released.
And with popular campaigns reaching million dollar targets, sites like indiegogo are being seen as the future of filmmaking.
We've set our budget at $60,000, which is actually considered a micro budget in the movie industry, Nadia said.
But as an independent filmmaker it's our job to be as resourceful and creative with that as possible.
And of course, if we raise over our target that would just mean we could make the movie even bigger and better.
