Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is headed for the big screen. The former First Lady is reportedly the subject of an upcoming biopic from South Korean screenwriter Young Il Kim, Politco reports.

Kim told Politico that the film is about "a journey of a woman who was torn between her personal desires and her professional ambition — both literally pulled her thousands of miles apart, because Bill did not want to leave Arkansas, and she did not want to leave Washington, D.C.”

The script for the film, titled "Rodham," nabbed the number four spot on Hollywood's Black List -- a list of unproduced scripts that have received industry acclaim, with past Black List films including "Django Unchained," "The Hunger Games," and "Argo."

"Rodham" will look at Clinton's early career as a young attorney on the House Judiciary Committee, which was responsible for the presidential impeachment process that was prepared for both Richard Nixon and years later, Clinton's husband, Bill Clinton.

Politico reports that Kim's script also shows a softer side of the ambitious Clinton, including a scene of her getting ready and singing to Carly Simon's "You're So Vain." Temple Hill Entertainment ("The Twilight Saga") is reportedly producing "Rodham."
