As a result, everyone on earth hits him up with their screenplay, their ideas, their can't-miss proposals.
Weinstein told an interviewer that the President sent him a spy novel, saying he should make it into a movie.
Maybe it was a suspenser about a President being forced to present his birth certificate. Just guessing.
Whatever it was, it didn't result in a deal.
Relates Weinstein, jovially, "I sent him an email back saying he was the most overqualified book scout I've ever had."
But two thoughts:
*Couldn't Obama just film the spy novel himself with all the money Weinstein's donated to his campaign?
*Now we know the pecking order of American power. The President pitches to the movie mogul!
