Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone were all previously rumored to be in the running for the role, but sources told The Hollywood Reporter that Mulligan is the top choice for the role. However, an official decision has not been made yet.
“Rodham” is being directed by James Ponsoldt and written by Young Il Kim. It follows a young lawyer who becomes involved in the impeachment of President Richard Nixon and how she tries to balance her own promising career with the feelings she has for the man who will become the president, Bill Clinton.
Do you think Mulligan should portray a young Hilary Clinton?
