London, July 16 (ANI): John Edwards' affair and his desperate attempts to hide his mistress will be developed into a movie.
Andrew Young, a former aide to the two-time presidential candidate, said that he has reached a deal with writer and producer Aaron Sorkin.
According to reports, he declined to discuss the terms of the agreement, but Sorkin confirmed he had acquired the rights to Young's book, 'The Politician'.
"This is a first-hand account of an extraordinary story filled with motivations, decisions and consequences that would have lit Shakespeare up," the Telegraph quoted Sorkin as saying in a statement.
"There's much more to Andrew's book than what has been reported and I'm grateful that he's trusting me with it," he added.
The book tells of how he helped hide Edwards' mistress during the candidate's second campaign for the White House.
In the aftermath of the 2008 presidential campaign, Edwards has admitted that he fathered a child with Rielle Hunter, his mistress.
However, who will play the roles still remains undecided. (ANI)
