Skip to comments.President Barack Obama pitches spy movie to Harvey Weinstein
Posted on 03/06/2012 2:28:11 PM PST by ColdOne
The president sent me a book the other day and said, 'Why don't you make this into a movie?'" Weinstein said in an interview published last week. I can't tell you [the title, but] it was a spy novel. I sent him an e-mail back saying he was the most overqualified book scout I've ever had.

let’s see...lets call it Manchurian Candidate
I didn’t know Dr. Seuss wrote spy novels.
So why would the Bummer want a new spy movie. Does he also want to star in it?
It's playing nationwide as we speak
Poor Harvey has not had any talent scouting books.
does now, bet he got the idea at Disney
Curious George Wears a Trenchcoat
Nice to know that Kenyan turd has solved all the more serious and pressing matters of the day and can now recommend books to be made into movies by the Hollyweird set.
I read that script - It was about a closeted homosexual President with an overbearing butch wife who, is battling against tin-pot North African dictators on behalf of his secret Muslim friends.
It was just too strange. No one would ever believe it.
Undercover Muslim Brotherhood Brotha?
ANything would be better than 2 of the more recent films I’ve seen — Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and The Safe House. Both of those were really bad.
But, OTOH, I would see any film recommended by Obama, just on general principles. He’s such a lightweight.
Meant to say that I would NOT see any film recommended by the Obummer.
Wow I am so glad he was able to sandwich that book scout activity in between his fund raisers, vacations and golf game.
Reminds me of a story ...
It was mystifying several years ago why she was hyped the way she was hyped. Just another starlet with no real significant starring vehicles somehow ending up with a prestigious magazine cover proclaiming her as the next It. Well It never happened. And after all this time and a string of failures, shes been trying to change the course. So shes gone back to the major player who tried to make it happen for her the first time. There was an arrangement back then her sexual services for his professional services and apparently the same arrangement was resurrected recently in the hopes that shell finally confirm a juicy role to kickstart a stagnant career.
Never mind that hes married. His wife benefits handsomely from his generosity and while he may not fulfill her with fidelity, he certainly makes up for it through client exchange. Probably better that way. And given what he looks like, it totally makes sense. But he is a legend in the business both for his accomplishments and for the way he leads these ladies to their accomplishments, counting a couple of award winners and a few box office heavyweights on his resumé which is why he quickly tired of our poor girl and discarded her.
But not before drying her out. One day late summer, they were joined in a hotel suite by a third gentleman (identity insignificant), both of them enjoying her as she allowed herself to be taken, and, um, decorated appropriately, all for a reward at the end of the session the privilege of simply looking at a script, no promise, no confirmation just an advance read. And a suggestion to show up at a premiere for a few introductions. She is so desperate, its been so meagre, she submitted to the humiliation although gamely seems to have enjoyed it. An actor after all, obviously able to shut out her husband and child waiting for her back at home.
And then he just cut it off. Told her he could no longer help her. That her body in his bed was no longer required. Which of course only added to her degradation. She tried and tried to offer up more, willing to engage in further depravity, but was only met with rejection. Because hes moved on. Hes hunting his next target. A young, nubile, blonde babe with a large profile and a perky rack who so far has been able to resist his advances but is trying to graduate from supporting roles in film, as the fact that shes a headliner on the small screen has not helped with the quality of scripts shes being offered, or with many of her auditions so far. Shes currently waiting on a big break and hes trying to make sure it doesnt happen, so that in her disappointment, shell come running to him, ready to wheel and deal.
Note: there are 4 famous names at play the reject, the replacement, the power player, and his wife.
In stead I would make a movie of Tom Clancy's “Locked On”.
When it came to publicize the movie release I would use terms such as “Almost as it was torn from today's headlines.” “Characters taken directly from America's front page news.” “Artfully blurs the lines between fact and fiction.”
And, no, they aren't hyperbola.
very good find! world tour apologize now!
