It helps, says once-struggling independent film producer David Klawans, to be the guy who came up with the idea to make a movie called "Argo," this year’s Oscar winner for best picture. It helps a lot.

“It’s just a lot easier now,” Klawans said. Without "Argo," he says, he might still be riding around Los Angeles on his bicycle pitching story ideas to skeptical movie moguls. Today, he says, people who matter in the cutthroat world of Hollywood entertainment even take his phone calls.

One of those people is George Clooney, who with Klawans and Clooney’s partner in Smokehouse Pictures, Grant Heslov, set in motion the project that would eventually become "Argo," back in 2007. Now they’ve joined forces again to make a new film, tentatively entitled "Coronado High."
