Back in August George Clooney thought it a good idea to follow the corporate thriller, Michael Clayton, with a courtroom drama. The actor joined the production as a producer with the option to also star. Now, almost half a year later, Warner Bros. has found somebody to write the film.

The Challenge Gets Scribe

Aaron Sorkin will write The Challenge, a courtroom drama bout the effort by Swift and Georgetown U. law professor Neal Katyal to ensure a fair trial for Osama bin Laden's driver, Salim Hamdan, who'd been held at Guantanamo Bay for five years.

The film will be based on the Jonathan Mahler book The Challenge: Hamdan v. Rumsfeld and the Fight Over Presidential Power.

The film will make it a point not to debat Hamdan's guilt or innocence, but rather chronicle the efforts of the two lawyers who ensure their client is given proper representation.

If you've never heard of Sorkin, one of his list scripts to make it to the silverscreen was Charlie Wilson's War starring Tom Hanks.
