L'AQUILA, Italy (AP) -- George Clooney has toured the ruins of Italy's recent earthquake and told the survivors he'll shoot a film in their mountain region.
The actor inspected crumbled buildings during a visit on the sidelines of the G-8 summit in L'Aquila. The April 6 quake left thousands homeless and killed nearly 300 people.
Italy is holding the summit there to show solidarity with the victims.
On Thursday Clooney visited a tent camp for the homeless and kissed four women and shook hands with residents.
The actor said in September he'll shoot part of a film in the area, which could help the local economy. The movie will be a thriller about a killer who tries to hide out in an Italian town.
Actor Bill Murray accompanied Clooney to help draw attention to the quake victims.
