HBO have confirmed that a documentary surrounding the powerful political figure, Bill Clinton, will be directed by Martin Scorsese. There is, however, no confirmed date as to when it will air, neither is there a title.
"A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world," Scorsese said in a statement. "Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure." Scorsese has forged a close working relationship with HBO, working on two separate documentaries with them, as well as with the entertainment side of their broadcasting, as he helmed the pilot episode of Boardwalk Empire, which has recently wrapped up its third season, with more on the way. Scorsese, of course, brings a wealth of moviemaking prowess with him, which will transform any documentary into a cinematic event as well as a fact-telling endeavour. As was the case with 41 - the doc about George H.W. Bush, which premiered last summer - Clinton's will be made with his full cooperation.
"I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film," President Clinton added. "I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO's audience."
