Bill Clinton Documentary: Martin Scorsese To Make HBO Movie About Former President

Bill Clinton and Martin Scorsese will team for a new documentary about the 42nd President of the United States.

The film, which will air on HBO, was announced via press release on Monday.

"A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world," Scorsese said in statement. "Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure."

The film will have the cooperation of Clinton, who said he was "pleased" to work with Scorsese and HBO.

"I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO's audience," Clinton said.

This isn't the first time HBO has produced a film about a former president. This year, the network aired "41," a documentary about the life of George H.W. Bush.

"This is not a political documentary," producer Jerry Weintraub told HuffPost Entertainment in April about the Bush doc. "This is a documentary about the man and his family and where he came from. He's 88 years old on June 12. It's a great time in his life to do something like this and it's in his words."

Scorsese and HBO have collaborated often in the last couple of years. The Oscar-winning director was behind the documentaries "Public Speaking" and "George Harrison: Living In The Material World"; he also directed the pilot for "Boardwalk Empire," a series that he still executive produces.
