CNN Films has tapped documentary filmmaker Charles H. Ferguson to direct a feature-length documentary about former Hillary Clinton, POLITICO has learned.
"CNN is very pleased to be working with Academy-Award winner Charles Ferguson on the film, which will be released in theaters and air on CNN," Allison Gollust, the network's senior vice president of communications, told POLITICO on Monday. The release date has yet to be determined.
The film adds yet another installment to the growing list of Hillary-related television projects and books slated for release before the 2016 presidential campaign. But is also presents a potential image problem for CNN's News division as it covers Clinton in the run up to her highly anticipated bid for the White House.
