Going Hollywood

The story of John Myatt -- "the man believed to be the world's most-prolific art forger" -- is coming soon to a theater near you. Clive Owen will play Myatt; George Clooney will play his accomplice, John Drewe. "Myatt and Drewe were convicted of fraud in 1998 and sent to prison. Myatt, who promptly admitted his guilt and repented, served only four months in jail and has become a celebrated figure in the art world. Drewe still professes his innocence, after serving a six-year sentence." Full story here.
