Clooney: I'll Film In Italy Quake Area

Posted: Updated:
L'AQUILA, Italy (AP) - George Clooney has toured the ruins of Italy's recent earthquake and told the survivors he'll shoot a film in their mountain region.

The actor inspected crumbled buildings during a visit on the sidelines of the G-8 summit in L'Aquila. The April 6 quake left thousands homeless and killed nearly 300 people.

Italy is holding the summit there to show solidarity with the victims.

On Thursday Clooney visited a tent camp for the homeless and kissed four women and shook hands with residents.

The actor said in September he'll shoot part of a film in the area, which could help the local economy. The movie will be a thriller about a killer who tries to hide out in an Italian town.

Actor Bill Murray accompanied Clooney to help draw attention to the quake victims.
