CBS Films has optioned Michael Isikoff and David Corns Russian Roulette, the story of the Russian attempt to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.
The book is currently on top of nonfiction titles on the New York Times bestseller list. Isikoff and Corn will serve as executive producers. Nick Wechsler, whose credits include American Assassin, is on board to produce.
The deal, announced Thursday, came following an auction of the movie rights. It was made on behalf of the Ross Yoon Agency by Hotchkiss & Associates. Wechsler is represented by Carlos Goodman at Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal LaViolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman.
Russian Roulette explores Moscow using hackers and trolls on U.S. political targets and exploiting WikiLeaks to disseminate information in order to affect the 2016 election. Isikoff and Corn detail the alleged spying and political feuds against the backdrop of President Donald Trumps relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin, along with the ties between Russia and members of Trumps inner circle.
Trump has repeatedly insisted that there was no collusion between his campaign and Russia, calling such accusations fake news. Special counsel Robert Mueller has not yet implicated the Russian leader or established the collusion with Trumps campaign.
Mark Ross will oversee the project for CBS Films. The news was first reported by Deadline.
This film will have all the veracity of the movie called “Truth.” Which is to say, none.
Ninety minutes of looking at a blank wall with no dialogue.
Corn...Isikoff movie deal bump
Do they see the irony of the film costing hundreds of times more than the Russians spent on Facebook ads during the election? Hell, the catering will probably cost more!
Who will play Seth Rich?
Operation Mockingbird’s 70-year tradition of using CBS for domestic propaganda continues.
Who will play Seth Rich?
Can’t wait for the cbs movie on how Shillary rigged the nomination against Bernie.
I’m betting it’ll be released in late summer, just before the Fall elections. The entire Hollywood elite should be regulated by the Federal Elections Commission.
They could get tons of folks to go to the movie by giving a copy of this best-seller book to each viewer:
... Geeze .... There is no outcome yet so how can you write a freakin’ plot .... Sheesh! ...... Well ... Unless .... YA! It must be a new “Three Stooges Move” .... Ya .... that’s it ..... “Three Stooges.”..... That’s the ticket!
I predict it will be released in the summer and fall of 2020, during the election campaign, to try to influence people’s votes.
Michael Moore freely admitted that his movie, Farenheit 911, came out in the summer of 2004, to influence that year’s election.
I can just imagine what CBS's Trump story will say. Sheesh. It's corrupt from top to bottom. Arrest them all.
