As we’ve previously announced, George Clooney plans to shoot his next film, The Ides of March, in Ohio and Michigan, and though we learned last week that he was scouting locations specifically in Grand Rapids, we now also know where exactly in Ohio the movie will be filmed.

According to WCPO, the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Film Commission held its annual fundraiser Saturday night in Cincinnati and announced that  George Clooney had selected the city as one of the film’s locations.

Clooney was in town  Nov. 12 scouting the area for the film and apparently liked what he saw. According to members of the commission, filming is set to begin in January with Clooney  directing and starring along with Paul Giamatti, Ryan Gosling, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood.

The shoot will be somewhat of a homecoming for Clooney who grew up in Kentucky and Ohio and is a graduate of Augusta, Kentucky High School which is located about an hour outside of Cincinnati. His father, Nick Clooney, also worked at several Cincinnati television station throughout the 1960s and 70s.
