Petraeus Insider Shopping Scandal Movie Deal

The woman who wrote a memoir detailing her experience close to the affair that ended former CIA Director David Petraeus’s career is reportedly shopping around for a deal to turn the story into a movie. According to Page Six, Jill Kelley—author of Collateral Damage: Petraeus, Power, Politics and the Abuse of Privacy (The Untold Story)—has already received several offers for the rights. “After I did a number of interviews, people from Hollywood started calling me about a movie deal,” Kelley said. “The book is written like a movie, it reads like a thriller.” Kelley reported receiving threatening emails, which allegedly started the FBI investigation that lead to evidence that Petraeus and his biographer, Paula Broadwell, were having an affair. He resigned from his post in 2012.
