Hillary Clinton Screenplay Sets Hollywood Buzzing 

A young Hillary Clinton decides between her career and boyfriend in the screenplay 'Rodham'

Who knows Hillary Clinton best? It may be South Korean screenwriter Young Il Kim.

Kim brings the secretary of state to Hollywood in his screenplay, "Rodham," which is generating a lot of Tinsel Town buzz.

Kim reportedly wrote the screenplay in four months, while in and out of New Jersey coffee shops. "Rodham" follows a 20-something Hillary Rodham as she tries to choose between a career and her boyfriend, Politico reported.

Her profession? The youngest attorney on the House Judiciary Committee, working to impeach President Richard Nixon.

Her boyfriend is none other than Bill Clinton, who's trying to launch his political career in Arkansas.

According to Jezebel, the screenplay appeared at No. 4 on this year's Black List, an annual poll of nearly 300 film executives on their favorite scripts.

Kim told Politico he was inspired to write the film after seeing the now-infamous photo of Clinton in the Situation Room during the 2011 Osama bin Laden raid.

Of course, this isn't the first talk of a Hillary movie. In May, Bill Clinton told CNN's Piers Morgan he'd like Meryl Streep to play his wife on screen.

But this one is certainly generating the most buzz.
