On a mission to bring every woman’s dream of dating a Hollywood hunk to the big screen, a Romford film-maker is appealing to readers to support her quest to make Looking for George Clooney.
The story is about a bored British housewife called Poppy who is going through a crisis.
She dumps her husband to go off in search of a “perfect” life, which she thinks must exist in Hollywood – and aims to date movie star George.
Nadia Jordan, 36, from Hornchurch, dreamt up the story after moving to Los Angeles in 2008.
The founder of Fluffy Cat Productions developed the idea with help from friend and West End playwright Hayley Nolan, 26.
Now the pair have launched an appeal via film funding website indiegogo to encourage cinema-goers from around the world to donate towards the production, which they plan to start filming in November.
Nadia, who has previously worked for the BBC, ITV, C4 and Sky, said: “The film was an idea I had for a TV show but then Hayley and I began to develop the story and decided it would work much better as a film.”
The pair will also star in the film with Nadia as kooky Poppy and Hayley playing her LA therapist Dr Eve Carter.
Film fans will receive a variety of perks in return for donating to the production including invites to cast movie screenings in Hollywood and London, their name in the credits and some will even land guest cameo roles.
The film has already received support from Stephen Fry and, if successful, Nadia and Hayley plan to enter it into major film festivals such as Sundance and Cannes next year.
Nadia said: “It would be so great to have the support from the community in which I grew up and collectively make this project a success.”
