Posted on 03/20/2018 7:35:32 AM PDT by EdnaMode
Former FBI Director James Comey, who was famously fired by President Donald Trump in May 2017, is considering selling the option to his hotly anticipated memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership, which publishes April 17.
Comeys agents at DC-based Javelin, Matt Latimer and Keith Urbahn, were in Los Angeles last week fielding pitches, according to a source with knowledge of the visit. A film or TV deal wasnt something Comey even thought about until a flood of people in Hollywood called and expressed interest after the book was announced in early August. Comey is said to be unsure if hell sell the option in the end.
Latimer and Urbahn met with agents, production companies and screenwriters to hear their pitches for the project, which involved both theatrical and television adaptations. Comey did not make the trip out last week, but if he decides to allow the project to advance, hell likely travel here sometime in the future.
Pre-orders for the book, which had been strong, took a huge leap over the weekend after Donald Trump attacked Comey by name in a pair of Saturday tweets.
In promos for the book, Comey is described as "sharing his never-before-told experiences from some of the highest-stakes situations of his career in the past two decades of American government, exploring what good, ethical leadership looks like, and how it drives sound decisions. They call the story an unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in what makes an effective leader.
Pee Wee Herman’s big shot at making a comeback by starring as Comey.
...any way to ‘get the word out’...
People are so gullible; they would believe what’s in the movie as fact.
Maybe it can be filmed in the yard at Danbury.
It’ll be another money-losing, zero audience political statement-movie, that Hollywood likes to regularly make.
aka, another Trump hit piece.
Don’t call it PlanetWTF? Fer ‘Nuthin!
James Comey should be weighing his ankle chains.
Any minute now one of Sessions’ sealed indictments with Comey’s name on it will be unsealed.
Any minute now....
He’s another one worth more than $11 million, plus a $3 million payout for a hedge fund when he became FBI directory.
At last ... Comey can express his drama queen self.
Sessions should go and get a restraining order against the publisher on the proceeds from any such book pending Comey’s exoneration or conviction. You’re not allowed to profit from a crime, and until Comey is acquitted or convicted, those funds should be escrowed.
Who says treason doesnt pay, as long as youre a Swamp Dweller it definitely pays. This is absolutely disgusting.
Comey hasn’t been charged with a crime. Sessions has been too busy praising Hillary-fixer Rosenstein.
Another Tonya Harding feel good story? This one about a treasonous politician.
The days in which you went to see movies like Field of Dreams, Top Gun, Working Girl, Witness, Ghost, Dick Tracy (1990),Bull Durham, Eight Men Out, History of the World Part 1, and many other titles back then seem to be even that further away with this latest insanity.
