Vince Vaughn to star in The Politician
Vince Vaughn is attached to star in The Politician, a comedy being developed at Columbia. Michael Dowse (“What if”) has come on board to direct.
The script, which was on the 2013 Black List, was written by Matthew Bass and Theodore Bressman and centers on a politician in Washington, D.C., who is caught in a scandal with some hookers. The man and his underachieving accomplice go on the run from the FBI, U.S. Marshals and a gang of drug dealers.
Seth Rogen is producing along with Evan Goldberg, James Weaver and Mark Gordon.
Note: This film is not to be confused with Aaron Sorkin’s The Politician, about John Edwards’ pursuit of the presidency and the scandal that brought him down.
