Clinton movie script being shopped

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- A screenplay for a movie about former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, featuring Elvis Presley's music, is being shopped around Hollywood.

Daniel R. Vovak, a screenwriter and owner of Greenwich Creations, announced he was trying to sell the script for "Bill and the Silk Box" shortly after Oliver Stone confirmed his plans to make a big-screen bio-pic about President George W. Bush.

"Nothing will be more entertaining than for the Clintons and the Bushes to compete at the box office," Vovak said in a statement. "The challenge of writing the script was juggling the political motivations of the characters with the importance of giving the film broad appeal. The Clinton era needs to be put into proper perspective, with comedy as its medium."

Vovak said he is open to suggestion regarding casting, but thinks Bill Paxton, David Morse or Tim Robbins would each make a great Bill Clinton. He also thinks Monica Lewinsky could be played by Amanda Bynes, Nia Vadralos or Minnie Driver.

The character of First Lady Hillary Clinton does not have any speaking parts in the film, Vovak said.
