Carey Mulligan is reportedly the front-runner to play Hillary Rodham Clinton in a biopic of the former first lady.
During Clinton's formative years, Mulligan seems to be the top choice amongst producers. There have also been other actresses considered, including Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone.
Sources say Mulligan will have a sit-down with director James Ponsoldt, but both seem eager to work together. Insiders say that there has not been a concrete decision about the leading role.
The indie drama will portray Rodham as a young lawyer during the impeachment of President Richard Nixon.
Clinton will be struggling with her career path and facing her unresolved feelings for Bill Clinton.
