Terrifying New Biopic From Hollywood: ‘Rodham’

Posted by on Jan 04, 2013 at 7:38 am

Maybe this should be considered a sequel to Liar, Liar. Apparently this will come under the fiction genre.

A screenplay dramatizing the secretary of state’s early career — when she was a young lawyer with the House Judiciary Committee, while Bill was getting started in Arkansas politics — is in development by Temple Hill Entertainment. Last month, “Rodham” was named the fourth-hottest unproduced script in the annual “Black List” poll of Hollywood execs. (Other Washington stories on the list: a thriller about a journalist investigating an Air Force One crash; a Joe McCarthy biopic; a couple of CIA dramas.) Screenwriter Young Il Kimtold Politico this week that he was inspired by a photo of Clinton “when she was in her 20s with Coke-bottle glasses and long, hippie hair.”

The slavish author of this item in the Washington Post clearly must have also recently suffered a mysterious head trauma considering the suggestions as to who should play the scheming young Ms. Rodham.

Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart: Too young, don’t you think?

Emma Stone: Sure, why not? She’s in every other movie these days. And she has the gravitas of a young Rodham.

Ellen Page: The “Juno” star is an edgier pick, but we can totally see her do the stringy hair/big glasses thing.

Scarlett Johansson: Stay with us here. Too sexy, you say? But look at those cheekbones, the blond hair/dark brows combo.Maybe? Remember, it is a love story.

Yes, because when I see a young Hillary Clinton the first person I think of is Scarlett Johansson.

    I did my own basic search this morning and yes this is the time
    that will be rewritten. When she ran away with Nixon investigation papers/ demonized him afterwards and has lived her entire life since being a power hungry cow.
    May she reep what she has sown, few examples of such evil in all of history.

    those pants try to hypnotize me yet I’m able to resist the disgusting impulse. Perhaps Bill was less ….discretionary

    BTW, on that McCarthy biopic; are the Hollyweird types going to point out that he was right – the government was full of Communists. AND they knew it at the time.
