Looks like there is another Presidential movie in DreamWorks’ future. The Lincoln studio announced today that it has picked up the rights to The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism. Out on November 5 from Simon & Schuster, the book about the bitter rivalry between the two former friends and Presidents is the latest from Doris Kearns Goodwin. The bestselling and Pulitzer Prize winning historian’s Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln served partially as the basis for the studio’s Oscar winning 2012 film about the 16th President. “Doris has once again given us the best seats in the house where we can watch two dynamic American personalities in a battle for power and friendship,” said Steven Spielberg in a statement today. It is not yet determined if Spielberg will direct the film, insiders say. Doris Kearns Goodwin was repped in the deal by ICM Partners.
