Alaska governor Sarah Palin
has inspired two of Hollywood's top screenwriters to fight for the right to make a movie about her life.
Republican Palin's role in the 2008 White House race divided America, with many questioning her credentials, her intelligence and her penchant for moose-hunting. But Tinseltown's top scribes believe she is great movie material.
writer Dustin Lance Black tells Variety
, "I'm always down for politics as humor. I'm also interested in great characters."
writer Todd McCarty, meanwhile, wants to focus any movie he makes on the teenager who impregnated Palin's 17-year-old daughter Bristol. He says, "This young man gets his girlfriend pregnant and ends up on the Republican platform at the National Convention. There's a dark comedy there somewhere. He was like a deer in the headlights."
