Dennis Quaid and Julianne Moore are set to play Bill and Hilary Clinton in “The Special Relationship” for HBO Films reports The Press Association.
The project is the third film in an unofficial ‘Tony Blair trilogy’ by “Frost/Nixon” playwright Peter Morgan. The first two, both penned by Morgan, were the TV movie “The Deal” and the Oscar-winning feature “The Queen”.
Michael Sheen will reprise his role as British Prime Minister Tony Blair, as will Helen McCrory as his wife Cherie Blair which she played in “The Queen”.
The story deals with the unique and sometimes turbulent political relationship between the newly installed PM and the U.S. president.
HBO is in discussions with the BBC to come aboard as a producing partner. Frank Doelger and Ann Wingate are producing.
