Last week we reported that Carey Mulligan (The Great Gatsby) was the frontrunner for the Hillary Clinton biopic, Rodham. Now it appears that Mulligan is going to pass on the opportunity, saying she’s “not prepared to commit to the role at this time.” This may come as good news for one of the other actors reportedly being sought for the role, such as Jessica Chastain, Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, and Amanda Seyfried. The James Ponsoldt-directed film focuses on Clinton as a young lawyer on the President Richard Nixon impeachment committee, and her attempts to balance her career path with her unresolved feelings for future President, Bill Clinton. THR also reports that the filmmakers are renewing the search for their lead.
