With the recent election of Barack Obama as our new President, it was only a matter of time before they started to make movies about him.
And as it turns out, HBO has just closed a seven-figure deal for the U.S. right to a Barack documentary.
The still untitled piece will be produced by actor Edward Norton.
It seems Edward's Class 5 Films had approached the Obama campaign back in 2006 about creating a documentary chronicling his history in politics.
Directors were also granted access to film Obama before he launched his presidential campaign in 2007 and continued filming all the way through his victory this Tuesday.
Norton said, "Senator Obama's history-making race for the White House has given our film a perfect framework to explore the pulse of the country at this vital moment in our history."
As for HBO, they plan to air the documentary next year.
Can't wait to watch.
