One of Hollywood's most famous writers will soon be sitting in the director's chair for the first time.
Aaron Sorkin will tackle the tale of John Edwards' disastrous 2008 run for the Democratic presidential nomination. The campaign was derailed after it was revealed that Edwards fathered an illegitimate child. Sorkin is no stranger to politics having written The American President, The West Wing and Charlie Wilson's War.
The prolific scribe is at the top of his game these days. He recently completely scripts for David Fincher's The Social Network and Bennett Miller's Moneyball.
