Valerie Plame & Joe Wilson Movie In The Works

Warner Bros. is developing a feature on the lives of Valerie Plame and Ambassador Joseph Wilson, the married couple drawn into a D.C. firestorm.
Plame's status as a CIA agent was revealed by White House officials allegedly out to discredit her husband after he wrote a 2003 New York Times op-ed piece saying that the Bush administration had manipulated intelligence about weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq.

The film is a co-production between Weed Road's Akiva Goldsman and Jerry and Janet Zucker of Zucker Productions.

The biggest question for me is casting. I like Will Ferrell for Scooter Libby. Valerie Plame perhaps could be evplayed by Laura Linney. VP Cheney to be played by Satan, and maybe Joe Wilson by Kevin Dunn. This is a movie I will be watching the first night it is released. I can boo at all the bad guys and throw popcorn at the screen. Your ideas for casting?
