(MENAFN - Trend News Agency ) A movie about Donald Trump titled The Apprentice is currently in development. Borrowing the title from the reality show Trump himself produced, American author Gabriel Sherman will pen the screenplay.
Just over a year into his presidency, US President Donald Trump will be the focus of a feature length movie based on his journey to the White House, beginning with the earliest moments of his career. Trump won the presidential election on November 8, 2016, edging out his running mate Hillary Clinton. Now, Vanity Fair's special correspondent Gabriel Sherman has been tasked with writing a screenplay based on the President's rise to power, with significant focus aimed at specific individuals who helped influence Trump, including attorney Roy Cohn. Gidden Media's Amy Baer will produce.
The movie, which is in the very early stages of development, will serve as a kind of origin story, according to THR. In an official statement, Sherman detailed his 15 years of experience reporting on Trump, explaining that he has 'long been fascinated' by Trump's meteoric rise. He explained that the movie will detail Trump's early 'formative period' that 'tells us so much about the man who today occupies the Oval Office.' Though Sherman did not specify the exact timeline, he did indicate the 'the gritty world of 1970s and '80s New York' will play a prominent role. It's unclear how much of Trump's time in the White House will be detailed in the movie, if it will even be featured at all.
