CNN Films Sets Hillary Clinton Docu For 2014, ‘Inside Job’ Director To Helm

The Hillary Clinton production industry continues to grow. Just two days after NBC announced that it will air a miniseries about her starring Diane Lane, CNN Films today said that they are making a feature-length documentary about the onetime senator, Secretary of State and First Lady. The film will be directed by Oscar-winner Charles Ferguson. In pre-production, the unnamed docu will debut theatrically in 2014 before being shown on the cable news network. No release date or airdate has been set. “I am very excited to be making a film about Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose fascinating life and work embody so many of America’s, and the world’s, hopes and challenges”, said Ferguson, who won the 2011 Documentary Feature Oscar for Inside Job, about the U.S. financial meltdown. “I am delighted and extremely grateful that CNN Films has given me this remarkable opportunity”.
