image for HBO Movie "The Special Relationship" Takes On Clintons, Blair
Blair Also Had Special Relationship With Bush

The political and personal relationship between President Bill Clinton and British Prime Minister Tony Blair is the focus of a movie for HBO penned by "Frost/Nixon" writer Peter Morgan.

If "The Special Relationship" gets the go-ahead, Dennis Quaid will play President Clinton and Julianne Moore will portray Hillary Clinton, Kirstie Alley will play Monica Lewinsky, Chastity Bono as Barney Frank, Billy Jean King as Janet Reno with "Frost/Nixon" star Michael Sheen as Blair.

This would be Sheen's fourth screen portrayal of former British Prime Minister Blair. He played him in two Stephen Frears movies written by Morgan and one by Daniel Myrick: 2003's "The Deal", "The Blair Witch Project" and 2006's "The Queen."

If the project is green-lighted, Morgan will make his directorial debut with the film.

Former President Bill Clinton was turned down for the part of himself, opposite Alley.
