John Edwards's Downfall Makes the Big Screen

The story behind Senator John Edwards's downfall makes it to the big screen

Rielle Hunter may be trying to live a quiet life in Dilworth, but she may find it difficult to avoid the spotlight. A-list screenwriter Aaron Sorkin—the brains behind The Social Network, The West Wing, and A Few Good Men—bought the rights to The Politician, Andrew Young’s book detailing former North Carolina Senator John Edwards’s run for president and his ultimate downfall, and is now penning a screenplay based on the book.
