'Rodham' Screenplay: Bill & Hillary, Sitting in a Tree
If you haven't gotten enough Hillary Clinton from the Benghazi hearings, stay tuned for the new biopic, "Rodham."
The feature film will focus on a younger Hillary, in 1974, when the 26-year-old worked as an attorney on the House impeachment inquiry staff. During Nixon's impeachment, the then-Rodham was dating Bill Clinton, then a law professor running for the House of Representatives in Arkansas.
"Rodham" was written by South Korean Young Il Kim, whose screenplay was on the coveted 2012 Black List -- an annual compilation of the top unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. Casting and filming has not yet begun, but the movie will be produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen of Temple Hill Entertainment and directed by James Ponsoldt.
The Daily Beast reports that it recieved a copy of what may (or may not) be the final screenplay for "Rodham." The script includes a steamy love scene between Hillary and Bill, and probably more profanity and juicy moments than you might expect given the subject of the film.
Here's a snippet from the Daily Beast article:
"Early in the screenplay, Rodham is described as a blonde with an 'awful haircut' whose face is obscured by a 'hideous pair of Coke bottle glasses,' and is, in totality, 'the valedictorian of the 'look-like-shit school of feminism.' Bill Clinton, meanwhile, is described as a 'Viking' with a 'full mane' and "six-inch beard."
