There Could Be a Hollywood Hillary Movie

NBC and CNN couldn’t do it, but Hollywood wants to take on Hillary Clinton. A real, feature film—titled Rodham—about the former Secretary of State has quietly been moving forward, The New York Times reports on Wednesday. The film is considered to be a much more personal look at Clinton and will focus on her years as a young lawyer during the Watergate era. The film is based on a script by screenwriter Young Il Kim, and is set to be directed by James Ponsoldt, the director of this summer's The Spectacular Now. Given that Clinton’s allies allegedly helped kill the other two projects, Rodham’s creators are hoping it will succeed since it focuses on an earlier point in her life.
