And that took a hot second: That political thriller that novelist James Patterson and former president Bill Clinton are penning is probably going to wind up a movie.
The authors of the upcoming The President is Missing are planning to woo Hollywood directors in meetings “later this spring,” as per the Hollywood Reporter. They’ve enlisted CAA agent Richard Lovett to help with the film deal. The co-bylined novel was announced only Monday.
We don’t know much about the plot, other than there’s a president who can’t be immediately located (duh), although the publishers are promising it will entail the kind of insider-y insights that can come only from someone who knows the office intimately.
