Aaron Sorkin to Direct Movie About A–hole John Edwards

Thursday, July 15 by

I hope you like movies about assholes, because Aaron Sorkin is working on one.

The famed writer will make his directorial début with The Politician, a film about John Edwards, arguably one of the greatest assholes in American history.
 
The film will chronicle Edwards’ meteoric rise as a politician, and his hilarious fall from grace. I can’t wait to see the part where Edwards cheats on his cancer ridden wife and accidentally knocks up his idiot, new-age mistress. That part always makes me chuckle. (Empire)
