After “Lincoln” Comes “Rodham”: Will Meryl Play Hillary?


Rodham will look at Clinton’s early career as a young attorney on the House Judiciary Committee, which was responsible for the presidential impeachment process that was prepared for both Richard Nixon and years later, Clinton’s husband, Bill Clinton.[HP]

You knew it was going to happen one of these days. Hollywood loves its biopics, and it especially loves biopics about strong, outspoken women who also happen to be First Lady and/or Secretary of State. Only Hillary Rodham Clinton has been both, so it makes sense that there is a very, very strong possibility that a major movie is about to be announced on her life story.

Writer Young Il Kim is currently working on the script and rumors are rife about which studio will nab the producing rights and (the inevitable question): will Meryl Streep play Hillary? Of course, this begs the question: can Bill play Bill?! Oh please!!!

All of this happens just in time, of course, for the launch of her 2016 presidential campaign.
