The Rodham screenplay buzz is almost as hot as the anticipation Hillary Rodham Clinton will announce she is running for President of the United States in 2016 and everyone is waiting to see who will play the for First Lady in the movie Rodham.

Several actresses have been named as possibilities to play a young Hillary Rodham in 1974 including A-list talent Jessica Chastain, Carey Mulligan and Scarlett Johansson.

Also mentioned for the role have been Reese Witherspoon and Amanda Seyfried.

According to Hollywood.Com, despite Hillary being an icon to Democrats, no actress seems to want the role of Hillary Rodham in the movie yet, in fact - the first three names mentioned in this article have already turned it down, a report reveals.

Hollywood.Com reports:

"(Jessica) Chastain was the first to pull out of the running, with reps stating that she was never officially approached for a chance at the role. Ditto for (Scarlett) Johansson, the most recent forfeiture, as reported by The Huffington Post. And in the middle of these announcements came The Hollywood Reporter's revelation concerning (Carey) Mulligan: a latecomer to the Hillary game and the only one of the bunch to have officially met with Rodham producers, she passed on the project."

A source close to the situation insisted that while Mulligan was considered the favorite, other actresses are still being mulled over for the independent drama, which was written by Young Il Kim.

The film will focus on 1974, when the former US First Lady and senator was a Washington lawyer in her mid-twenties. It is being lined up for a 2016 release in order to coincide with the next US presidential election, in which Clinton could be a candidate.
