Lionsgate may produce a movie about Hillary Clinton’s early law career, after CNN and NBC dropped their productions about the former Secretary of State in September, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The entertainment company is in early talks with Temple Hill and The Arlook Group to produce “Rodham,” a biopic about Clinton’s time as a lawyer on the House Judiciary Committee to impeach Richard Nixon. The movie, written by Young-Il Kim, made the 2012 “Black List,” a compilation of best unproduced screenplays.
James Ponsoldt, director of recent indie movie “The Spectacular Now,” has been tapped to direct the Clinton film, according to the Hollywood reporter.
The actress to portray Clinton has not yet been decided, but Ponsoldt met with Carey Mulligan this summer, according to the Hollywood reporter.
