Ryan Gosling is being considered by George Clooney to take the lead in his new film, Farragut North.

The Good Night And Good Luck filmmaker is negotiating with Ryan to play a communications director working for a fast-rising presidential candidate, who soon falls prey to backstabbing and foul play, Deadline reports.

Based on the Beau Willimon play, the part was once being considered by Leonardo DiCaprio, with Star Trek's Chris Pine also in the mix for the role, following his acclaimed portrayal in the Broadway production.

Also starring in George's fifth directorial effort is Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Evan Rachel Wood, Marisa Tomei and Paul Giamatti also rumoured to appear.

George, who is also co-producing with Smokehouse Productions partner Grant Heslov, is expected to start production in March 2011.

Ryan, who last appeared in Lars And The Real Girl, next stars with Michelle Williams in Blue Valentine, which will have its UK premiere at the London Film Festival.
