Why is Hollywood not interested in a movie about the family feud between the Clintons?
Posted September 16, 2018 09:16:07 While it’s still unclear whether the Clintons are actually involved in the scandal, a recent report from Deadline indicates that the actress, who is currently on hiatus, may have already had some interest from major studios.
While the report claims that the Clinton family feud “may” be one of the most discussed topics among studio executives, the reports claim that the star’s absence from the project was due to her being a “high-profile candidate for a leading role” in a “serious” movie about her family’s feud.
The report goes on to say that when Deadline approached the actress with an offer to star in a film, she turned them down.
“I would love to do it, but I’m not sure how,” the actress told Deadline in an interview published on Monday.
“They don’t want to do a serious movie about it.
It’s not something that they’re interested in doing.”
According to Deadline, the Clintons’ involvement in the movie was first revealed by a report from RadarOnline in which the actress was allegedly offered a “franchise” of the family’s family feud drama as part of the package.
However, when the actress turned down the offer, the report alleges that a “very high-ranking producer” “was concerned about a number of issues, including the actress’ reputation.”
“He told me he had a very high level of concern about the project,” the report continues.
“He said it was very, very sensitive to the Clintons and that the Clintons would be a huge part of it, and that he wouldn’t want the film to be seen as anything other than an effort to raise awareness.”
“So, I’m a big fan of the Clintons, and I don’t think I could do a movie that would be so damaging to the Hillary Clinton brand,” the star continued.
And I was going to sign with him, but the reason I signed was because he said I’d be great for the movie.” “
My agent, I mean, he’s a professional agent.
And I was going to sign with him, but the reason I signed was because he said I’d be great for the movie.”
The actress is currently slated to appear in “The Real Housewives of New York City” spinoff “New York City Girls” on Sept. 24.
The new movie, which is also being produced by Paramount, was initially expected to be released in 2019.
“We are not aware of any new offers from any major studios for ‘The Real Houseswives of NY,'” a spokesperson for the production company told Deadline.
“This was a long-standing project for Paramount and it has been approved by the network.
The movie is being produced entirely independently and without interference from any other studio.”
According the Deadline report, the film is set in the 1960s and was reportedly “in the works” for decades before the Clinton’s family “fought” the Clintons’ daughter, Kathy, in the 2016 election.
The Clintons have been accused of targeting the actress in recent years for her outspoken support for President Donald Trump, which was one of several things the Clintons did in support of Trump during the 2016 presidential election.
However with the Clintons now out of the picture, it seems that they may be looking to move on from the Clintons.
“At the end of the day, we’ve got a great team,” the Clinton spokesperson told Deadline, “and I look forward to continuing to work with the cast and crew to bring this film to life.”
While the latest reports are still unconfirmed, Deadline’s report suggests that the upcoming film may be a continuation of the first film, which will also focus on the Clintons as “family feud” characters.
“The real estate mogul’s feud with his ex-wife, former first lady Kathy Shelton, has long been a major storyline in the Clintons story, and the first movie will explore the relationship in greater detail, THR has confirmed.
The upcoming movie, titled ‘The Clintons Family,’ will be the latest chapter in the blockbuster franchise, which includes “The Hunt for the Wilderpeople,” which opened in 2016 and “Clinton Cash,” which premiered in 2016.
