(NEWSER) – Under-40s actresses in Hollywood have been clamoring for the role of Hillary Clinton in an upcoming biopic, but insiders say Carey Mulligan has the best shot. The actress is set to meet with director James Ponsoldt to iron out details. But though the filmmakers and Mulligan are hoping for a deal, the Hollywood Reporter notes, other actresses haven't been ruled out. Previously, Scarlett Johansson, Emma Stone, and Jessica Chastain had been rumored as possibilities. Rodham will tell the story of Clinton's early career working as a lawyer on Richard Nixon's impeachment; it will also address her burgeoning romance with a certain Bill Clinton.
