Rodham will follow former Secretary of State/Senator/first lady/gift to the world (though that last one isn't former) Hillary Clinton during her early lawyering days, when she "finds herself forced to choose between a destined path to the White House and her unresolved feelings for Bill Clinton, her former boyfriend who now teaches law in Arkansas." The movie already has a screenwriter and a director, and now The Independent has named a several actresses who are reportedly being considered for the title role.
In Which We Don't Make An Obvious Pun
The first trailer for Epic, about a teenage girl who gets shrunk down to insect-size and must help her local forest creatures save their home from an evil... er... decay monster...? Can't quite parse that one out. Anyway, the first trailer didn't include much of its protagonist, voiced by Amanda Seyfried. This trailer, on the other hand, gives us a better look at her, and it has a pretty nice Honey, I Shrunk the Kids throwback at the end. (via: Deadline)
We're pretty excited about Epic, the new film from the creators of Ice Age and Rio. Why? Well, for starters, it's about a teenage girl who shrinks down to the size of a leaf and teams up with tiny forest fairies and bugs to save the world as we know it. Oh, and the film boasts a star-studded cast, including Amanda Seyfried, Beyoncé Knowles, and Aziz Ansari. The trailer is seriously lacking clips of its protagonist, but the gorgeous visuals and the promise of a girl lead is pretty exciting. Epic will hit theaters May in 2013. (via Geek Dad and Bangstyle.)
