Crash duo Bobby Moresco and Mark R. Harris are joining forces to give the saga of Whitewater figure Susan McDougal the feature treatment, reports Variety.
McDougal spent 21 months in prison on civil contempt of court charges for refusing to implicate President Bill Clinton in the real estate scandal.
Moresco will write the script and direct. Harris and Moresco, who produced Crash, will produce the McDougal film together.
They’ve secured rights to McDougal’s story, as well as her book “The Woman Who Wouldn’t Talk.” The film may be ready next year and would bring Whitewater back to public consciousness at a time when Hillary Clinton vies to secure the Democratic Party nomination for president.
Former president Clinton nevertheless supports the film, said Moresco and Harris.
