Backstage News

A photograph showing former White House intern Monica Lewinsky meeting President Bill Clinton at a White House function submitted as evidence in documents by the Starr investigation and released by the House Judicary committee September 21, 1998.

Look…we get the whole ‘90s nostalgia thing, but this seems to be a bit much.

Per Deadline, the film rights to Linda And Monica, a film about the friendship of Linda Tripp and Monica Lewinsky, has been acquired by Amazon Studios.

For those of you just waking from a coma, Tripp was a White House aide, and Lewinsky was a White House intern during the Bill Clinton administration. The two struck up a friendship, which promptly ended when Tripp leaked her secretly recorded conversations with Lewinsky about her affair with President Clinton. (It was kind of a big story.)

No word yet as to whether this will be a drama or a comedy, but if Saturday Night Live has any influence on casting, we definitely know who should play Tripp.
