The dirty secrets of the first persons of America have always interested not only journalists, but also film producers. Recently we reported that Hollywood is preparing a series about Eleanor Roosevelt's relationship with Associated Press Lorena Hickok, and now The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Amazon Studios acquired the rights to the script for a film titled Linda and Monica ( Linda and Monica ).|
The script by Flint Wayness was included in the famous Blacklist last year. It is about the friendship between Monica Lewinsky and Linda Tripp, which almost ruined not only the lives of both women, but also the political career of Bill Clinton.
Linda Tripp was a close friend of Monica Lewinsky when they worked at the Pentagon. As a result, it turned out that Tripp secretly recorded telephone conversations with Lewinsky , in which she confessed to having a sexual relationship with the 42nd President of the United States. Linda handed these notes to the independent attorney Kenneth Starr , who was investigating the Whitewater case involving the Clintons couple and their machinations with taxes. After the public learned about Lewinsky 's inappropriate relationship with the president, a political scandal erupted that nearly deprived Clinton of his presidency.
It is noteworthy that the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal interested not only the online service Amazon - TV producer Ryan Murphy is going to devote the fourth season of American Crime Story to it.
The production functions of the new film are assigned to Todd Black ("The Magnificent Seven"), Jason Blumenthal ("Lefty") and Steve Tisch ("The Great Equalizer").
