Sarah Palin Movie in the Works

Sarah Palin’s 15 minutes of fame is not over! A movie about America’s favorite Vice Presidential candidate is reportedly in the works. And it gets better! Two of Hollywood’s top screenwriters are both in a fight to write the script!

Sarah managed to become one of the top news stories of 2008, and was a major topic of controversy prior to Election Day. But drama makes for a great story, which is why these screenwriters are eager to write the script.

And these aren’t just any old writers. They’re Dustin Lance Black who wrote Oscar-nominated Milk, and The Visitor scribe Todd McCarty. But the two have very different visions for the movie. Black wants to focus on the humorous aspect of Sarah Palin, while McCarty wants the movie to center around Bristol Palin and her boyfriend, and their surprise pregnancy.

Black tells Variety, "I'm always down for politics as humor. I'm also interested in great characters."

McCarty says, "This young man gets his girlfriend pregnant and ends up on the Republican platform at the National Convention. There's a dark comedy there somewhere. He was like a deer in the headlights."

Both of them sound intriguing! We’d like to see a combination of the two! Maybe they’ll work together and write the script. Either way, we want to see this movie made! Who do you think should play Sarah Palin?
