Obama: The Movie
Posted on Nov 7, 2008
You’ve seen the buttons, the T-shirts, the Fridge for Change—now get ready for the definitive Barack Obama campaign documentary, brought to you (in part) by liberal thespian Edward Norton.
Hollywood Reporter via Yahoo News:
HBO has closed a seven-figure deal for U.S. rights to an untitled Barack Obama documentary produced by actor Edward Norton.
Norton’s Class 5 Films approached the Obama campaign in early 2006 about a documentary chronicling the new president elect’s history in politics. Directors Amy Rice and Alicia Sams were granted extensive access to film Obama before he launched his presidential run in 2007 and have continued their shoot through his historic victory this week.
