McClellan's Bush-Bashing Book to be Made Into a Movie?
Honestly, do Hollywoodans have no shame?
If rumors swirling around Tinseltown about a movie being made about Scott McClellan's new Bush-bashing book "What Happened" are true, the answer to that question is a resounding "No."
Yet, according to Jeffrey Ressner at Politico, this disgraceful idea is already being floated (emphasis added):
"We’ve been talking to TV people, and interest is starting to come, but it’s too early to say anything,” says McClellan’s literary agent, Craig Wiley, who is also in charge of fielding offers for the book’s ancillary rights.
Should the book be sold to a studio or a TV network, it would mark the sixth project about the Bush presidency that’s currently in development or being shot. Others include Oliver Stone’s “W,” now filming in Shreveport, La.; “Fair Game,” adapted from the book by outed CIA agent Valerie Plame, with “Bourne Identity” director Doug Liman and actress Nicole Kidman attached; “Against All Enemies,” based on counterterrorism expert Richard Clarke’s memoir (but currently on hold); an untitled documentary by Michael Moore, following up his record-breaking “Fahrenheit 9/11”; and a French documentary, “Being W,” which was promoted at the recent Cannes Film Festival with a poster of Bush in clown makeup balancing the planet on his fingertip.
Isn't that special?
