Marc Forster Remake 36 To Star Clooney And De Niro?

Production Weekly have put George Clooney in the starring frame for 36, the remake of 36 Quai des Orfevres. Apparently, Marc Forster will be shooting the film, from a Dean Georgaris script, later this year - right when we all though Clooney would be busy (and hopefully still will be) with the Coens and Burn Before Reading. If one of the films is to fall by the wayside, I sincerely hope it's Forster's.

De Niro is set for the other lead role, the other of two cops competing for a promotion. The stars of the original were Gerard Depardieu and Daniel Auteuil and while it hasn't been announced which way round the recast will fall , but I'd expect it to go Depardieu/De Niro and Auteuil/Clooney.
