Moviefone Blog, 2/17/11 -- CINEMATICAL SEVEN: Upcoming Presidential Projects on Lincoln, Roosevelt and Harding
6. 'Unscrupulous,' Warren G. Harding biopic
Release date: 2013
Harding's brief tenure as president was rife with bribery, corruption and possibly murder, all excellent subjects for any political bio. Charles Mee's 1980 novel 'The Ohio Gang,' referred to the "scandal-plagued collection of eccentric characters" with whom the 29th president surrounded himself leading up to the notorious Teapot Dome scandal. No talent other than politically minded producer/director William Rabbe ('Winning New Hampshire') and screenwriter Barbara Turner ('Pollock') have been announced yet.
