“Rodham,” a movie about the younger years of former First Lady, senator and secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton is due out some time around the 2016 presidential election.

The Independent:  “Among those in the running to play the 26-year-old Clinton are Amanda Seyfried, who starred in Les Misérables, Zero Dark Thirty‘s Jessica Chastain, Reese Witherspoon, and Scarlett Johansson, most recently seen playing Janet Leigh in Hitchcock.

The film’s script, written by Young il-Kim, made last year’s “Black List”, which highlights Hollywood’s best unrealised scripts. Having been leaked by The Daily Beast earlier this month, it attracted attention for its racier scenes. But Kim told The Daily Telegraph: “I didn’t write 50 Shades of Rodham, as some news outlets are suggesting. I am a boring prude with little imagination.”

Asked whether the final draft would include sex scenes, Mr Kim replied: “It’s an evolving process so I don’t know. She was an attractive 26-year-old with an amazing future. And that’s our thematic focus.”

“Rodham” will focus on 1974 when Hillary Clinton was a Washington lawyer. No matter what you think about Hillary Clinton, you can’t dispute the fact that she worked hard and she showed a deep dedication to her cause.
