Obama Pitches Movie Idea to Harvey Weinstein, Movie Mogul Passes

Just because you’re the President of the United States doesn’t mean you can just order a movie made based on your favorite book. Even if you’re pitching one of your biggest donors who also happens to be one of the biggest producers in Hollywood. Oscar-winning producer Harvey Weinstein revealed

The President sent me a book the other day and said ‘Why don’t you make this into a movie?’ I can’t tell you [what it was]. It was a spy novel.

Weinstein passed:

I sent him an email back saying he was the most overqualified book scout I’ve ever had.

Weinstein isn’t naming the book, but odds are it wasn’t Chelsea Quinn Yarboro’s costume vampire spy thriller, Writ In Blood: A Novel of the Comte de St. Germaine or (sadly) The Illuminantus Trilogy.
