A television adaptation of Michael Wolff's novel Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House has been announced. Now, Endeavor Content (a combination of offices of WME and IMG) has bought the rights to the tell-all with intent to create a television series out of it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fire and Fury comes after HBO canceled a planned series based on the 2016 election.
The book's publisher, Steve Rubin, suggested that the broad appeal of "Fire and Fury" is no accident, Stelter reported. However, the President responded to Fire and Fury TV series rumors with some strong tweets. On Twitter, Trump accused Wolff of fabricating stories.
Trump allies said they sought Hicks' guidance on whether to speak with Wolff because they consider her to be the aide most familiar with Trump's media preferences, having served as the White House director for strategic communications before becoming communications director.
If the current president is so eager to have his tenure compared to Obama's, it took almost eight years for the first Obama biopics-Southside with You and the very underrated Barry-to be made. According to CNBC, Trump wanted to lose the presidential race to Hillary Clinton. In fact, Wolff even slips into using Bannon's sarcastic slang terms to describe other members of Trump's inner circle (such as Jarvanka to refer to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump). Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn't become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. "Losing was winning", the book read. This is reportedly the largest deal yet for Endeavor Content, which curently has pact with Peter Chernin's Chernin Entertainment as well as a feature with Michael B. Jordan.
