Documentary on Bill Clinton stalled
Filmmaker Martin Scorsese’s documentary of former US President Bill Clinton has been stalled due to reported arguments between the two.
Considering the strong possibility that Hillary Clinton is planning her own presidential run in 2016, her husband also reportedly wants the documentary’s final cut to ensure nothing that can harm her it is aired. Scorsese, for his part, is reluctant to give up the reins of the editing room, reports nytimes.com.
Because of this, as well as daughter Chelsea Clinton’s supposed involvement in the partly HBO-backed film, the documentary’s production is currently at a standstill.
When asked about the lingering disagreement between Scorsese and Clinton, a spokesman for the 42nd US president termed the allegations ‘inaccurate’.
Although Scorsese didn’t comment, an HBO representative said of the documentary: “It’s not happening soon but that doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen.”
Scorsese is currently in Taiwan working on pre-production for his 2016 film Silence.
