George Clooney is set to star in 8, a play written Dustin Lance Black and adapted from actual transcripts of of the Proposition 8 trial for marriage equality in California.
Clooney told The Hollywood Reporter "It is astonishing that gay and lesbian Americans are still treated as second-class citizens.

Rob Reiner will direct the one night only production March 3 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles. The L.A. production will also serve as a benefit for the American Foundation For Equal Rights. Other cast members will be announced soon.
