No sooner had it been announced that two films about Hillary Clinton — a documentary from CNN and a miniseries by NBC — had been abandoned, then reports emerged that two more films about her are in the works. Todays (Wednesday) New York Times reported that a film about Mrs. Clinton’s younger years as a lawyer during the Watergate era is “quietly inching forward.” While it has not yet been cast, the film, titled Rodham, has a “well-regarded” script by Young Il Kim and is set to be directed by James Ponsoldt, who helmed the critically praised indie The Spectacular Now, released this year. Meanwhile a conservative group, Citizens United, is also planning a Hillary Clinton film that it plans to release theatrically. It is expected to take her to task for her decisions as secretary of state between 2009 and 2013. David Bossie, president and chairman of Citizens United, told today’s Hollywood Reporter: “NBC was casting Diane Lane as Hillary Clinton. Come on. They were doing everything in their power to make Hillary look good, which is their right. … But ours will not be a puff piece designed to promote a Hillary Clinton presidency.”
