yHBO's 'Special'

Dennis Quaid is attached to play President Clinton, Julianne Moore to play Hillary Clinton and "Frost/Nixon" star Michael Sheen to play former British Prime Minister Tony Blair in "The Special Relationship," a movie for HBO penned by "Frost/Nixon" writer Peter Morgan. If it is greenlighted, Morgan will direct the film, about the political relationship between Bill Clinton and Blair. Kathleen Kennedy, Morgan and Andy Harries are exec producing, with the BBC in talks to co-produce with HBO.
