Hollywood Plans Tony Blair Movie
Movie bosses are planning to shoot a TV movie about the life of TONY BLAIR - and FORREST GUMP star TOM HANKS is tipped to play the British Prime Minister.
Former American President BILL CLINTON has been approached to make an appearance as himself in the $80 million (GBP50 million) mini-series, which is the brainchild of veteran producer AARON SPELLING.
And stars including MICHAEL DOUGLAS and JENNIFER ANISTON are also lined up for lead roles.
A source says, "Tony Blair is prime TV material. It will be the most dazzling, political soap ever - portraying a love story between a nation and a leader.
"It's just in the planning stage but Hollywood is really buzzing."04/09/2003 13:37
