Bobby Moresco and Mark R. Harris are teaming up on the presidential investigation flick, Whitwater figure Susan McDougal.
Variety reports McDougal spent 21 months in prison on civil contempt of court charges for refusing to implicate President Bill Clinton in the real estate scandal. Moresco will write the script and direct. They've secured rights to McDougal's story, as well as her book The Woman Who Wouldn't Talk. The film may be ready next year and would bring Whitewater back to public consciousness at a time when Hillary Clinton vies to secure the Democratic Party nomination for president.
The duo will look to align a financier quickly and may have an actress in line to play McDougal by the time they make that deal.
