Sarah Palin may be coming to a movie theater near you.
The former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate has been the focus of "will she or won't she" speculation about her 2012 intentions. News Wednesday that Palin will be the focus of a $1 million film "The Undefeated" may be the clearest indication yet that the "Thrilla from Wasilla" is plotting a run for the White House.
The two-hour long movie will premiere in Iowa and then roll-out in key primary states such as South Carolina and New Hampshire, according to RealClearPolitics, which broke the story.
Palin is not interviewed in the film, but reportedly had an aide reach out to conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon with a pitch to make a movie that could burnish her "maverick" bona fides and hit back at criticism over her decision to resign as governor before her term had expired.
Bannon secured audio rights to Palin's 2009 book "Going Rogue," but the crux of the narrative seems to be comedians and mainstream media members taking potshots at the politician. Among those reportedly seen cracking wise about Palin are Rosie O'Donnell, Howard Stern and David Letterman.
That's sure to fire up the former governor's base, but Palin may have to do some fence-mending with the conservative media too. If a recent New York magazine profile is to be believed, Fox News chief Roger Ailes thinks that Palin is "stupid."
Through subordinates, Ailes has subsequently denied the charge, but clearly Bannon's pro-Palin flick has some work to do.
