Hillary Clinton on screen after all? Two films moving forward. (+video)(Read article summary)
Earlier this week, two television projects about Hillary Clinton were scrapped under political pressure, but two films about the potential 2016 candidate have cropped up.
But two films are moving ahead about the early favorite among potential Democratic presidential candidates, which means Mrs. Clinton could very well be on the silver screen before the 2016 presidential election.
Citizens United, a conservative advocacy group, plans to release a film about her tenure as secretary of State, and in Hollywood, a screenplay of her young days as a lawyer on the Watergate case is slowly moving forward, according to reports by The Hollywood Reporter.
On the eve of the 2008 presidential primaries, Citizens United released "Hillary: The Movie," an unflattering portrayal of the then-presidential candidate. The Federal Election Commission placed restrictions on the film, which Citizens United wanted pay-per-view cable TV to air, on the grounds that it violated the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform act. Citizens United then sued the FEC.
