Fired FBI Director James Comey could get as much as $10 million for his memoir and already has Hollywood movie execs lining up to film the White House blockbuster, according to a report.
“Jim Comey’s story has everything, from White House intrigue to possible corruption and law breaking. His explosive story makes ‘West Wing’ and ‘House of Cards’ on a par with Mister Rogers,” The Daily Mail reported, citing an acquisition editor for a New York publishing house.
“When his proposal hits my desk, I’ve already been authorized to offer $10 million.”
The $10 million payday would put Comey on par with former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary Clinton.
“I know one top drawer producer who’s already talking to stars to cast the Comey role. He has to be tall, good-looking and a Jimmy Stewart-John Wayne-hero type. I was mesmerized when I spent the whole day watching Comey testify,” a movie-TV agent told the website.
Comey testified at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing last Thursday about Trump asking him to curb and investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Trump fired Flynn in February after reports revealed he had met with a Russian ambassador during the campaign and kept those meetings hidden from White House officials.
