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.
