George Clooney Wants Kate Winslet

Hunky actor GEORGE CLOONEY is after sexy KATE WINSLET - to co-star with him in a new film.

The PERFECT STORM, The (2000) star is collaborating with Oscar-winning director STEVEN SODERBERGH on the World War II adventure THE GOOD GERMAN, set in Berlin.

The pair, who are currently working on the re-make of OCEAN'S 11 (2001), apparently agree 25-year-old TITANIC (1997) actress Kate will be perfect to play Clooney's romantic interest in the movie.

A source quoted on the ANANOVA website says, "The role they have in mind is perfect for an English rose figure, and she fits in the bill in every way. "George saw her in Titanic and then in HIDEOUS KINKY (1999) and thought, 'There is nobody else'. Soderbergh agrees." (NFA/WNWCAN/CPT)
