Alaska Governor might have failed in her Vice Presidential bid, some Hollywood scriptwriters are so fascinated by her that they are planning films on her.
It so emerged when screenwriters nominated for awards this year were asked to choose the 2008 even they would most like to turn into a screenplay.
“I''m always down for politics as humour. I''m also interested in great characters,” the New York Post quoted ‘Milk’ scriptwriter Dustin Lance Black as telling Variety magazine.
Tom McCarthy, who penned the script for ‘The Visitor’, is also planning to write a screenplay about hockey-playing hunk Levi Johnston, who knocked up Palin''s daughter Bristol.
"This young man gets his girlfriend pregnant and ends up on the Republican platform at the National Convention. This 17-year-old kid from Alaska, standing on the stage - there''s a dark comedy in there somewhere. He was like a deer in the headlights," McCarthy said.
