(Newser) – The sordid tale of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, as well as the sexual hijinks of Bill Clinton and Silvio Berlusconi, may soon be playing at a movie theater near you. Gerard Depardieu and Isabelle Adjani are being eyed as stars in a possible project involving Bad Lieutenant director Abel Ferrara and writer Chris Zois, who are working on a feature script, reports Deadline. The idea popped up as Ferrara was working on 4:44 Last Day on Earth, according to sources.

It's far from a done deal, but the duo are "writing something inspired by Strauss-Kahn that will focus on addiction and politicians," said French producer and film distributor Vincent Maraval. “If we feel there’s a movie, we’ll go further.” Depardieu wouldn't comment on specifics, but did say in a recent interview that he's "very good at playing characters that I don’t like or those that I don’t resemble.”
