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."
