Aaron Sorkin to Direct a John Edwards Biopic Based on the Politician

Aaron Sorkin's Next Project: A John Edwards Biopic

Aaron Sorkin's latest film, The Social Network, made a splash this week with its new intense trailer, but for his next project, The West Wing creator is staying with current events and going back to the political. He'll write and direct a biopic about John Edwards and the scandal surrounding his 2008 run for president.

Sorkin has optioned the rights to The Politician, which recounts the road of the former Democratic candidate as he was accused of fathering an illegitimate child, then admitted his guilt to the shock of the nation and his wife. At the time, I definitely thought about what a dramatic roller-coaster ride that news was, so it's almost tailor-made for a movie. The only question now is: who should play Edwards?
