A John Edwards’ movie maybe in the works. The film will center around the politician and his mistress. Andrew Young, the former aide to John Edwards stated he has reached a deal with writer and producer Andrew Sorkin on the movie.
According to Suntimes, Sorkin has acquired the rights to Andrew Young’s book “The Politician”. Sorkin stated that the film will get to the nitty gritty of Young’s book,
“This is a first-hand account of an extraordinary story filled with motivations, decisions and consequences that would have lit Shakespeare up…Thereâ€™s much more to Andrewâ€™s book than what has been reported and Iâ€™m grateful that heâ€™s trusting me with it.â€
‘The Politician’ details how Young helped Edwards hide his mistress during the candidate’s second campaign for the White House. Young says he is happy with Sorkin angle on the movie,
â€œHe was the perfect one to write this,â€ Young said. â€œI was really impressed by him and really impressed how he was focused on the tragedy of this rather than the tawdry.â€
Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter, is currently fighting a battle against Young over an alleged sex tape that shows the presidential candidate having intimate relations with Hunter.
I’m disgusted to think what will be shown in the movie! Will his alleged sex tape be on there also? It’s unfortunate that John Edwards had an affair and now with this new movie deal, I can only imagine what Elizabeth Edwards’ reaction will be when she finds out about this developement!
