Lionsgate is in early talks to make Rodham, a biopic about Hillary Clinton as a young lawyer working on a committee involved in impeaching Richard Nixon and struggling with her feelings for a guy named Bill.
The movie, written by Young-Il Kim, would be directed by James Ponsoldt, who directed the highly acclaimed indie movie The Spectacular Now, according to the Hollywood Reporter. No lead actress is currently attached to the Temple Hill-produced drama.
But this movie isn’t the first Hillary Clinton film project in the works, and it wouldn’t be the first to fail. NBC cancelled its miniseries project on Hillary and CNN cancelled its documentary earlier this year.
