Actor George Clooney has revealed that he had put his movie Ides Of March on hold after US President Barack Obama was elected, because he knew people wouldn't like to watch a movie on political scandal.

"We were in pre-production on this film in 2007, before the Obama election. And then we realised that a good portion of the country was elated with what happened in that election, so we had to shelve the movie until people were cynical again," Clooney told Parade magazine.

In the film, Clooney plays the role of a Democratic presidential candidate along with actor Ryan Gosling as a campaign worker, who is forced to learn dirty tricks in the run-up to the election, reports dailystar.co.uk.
