‘Fire and Fury’ May Be Coming to a Screen Near You

“Fire and Fury” could be coming to the small screen. Or maybe even the big one.
Endeavor Content has acquired the rights to Michael Wolff’s No. 1 best-selling book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” and plans to develop it into a TV show or a feature film.
No TV network or film studio has been attached to the project.
A “Fire and Fury” adaptation could be the first major dramatic portrayal of the Trump White House. HBO had plans to develop a show from a book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann about the final days of the 2016 campaign, but that project was canceled after Halperin was accused of sexual misconduct.
News about the rights to Wolff’s book being acquired was reported by The Hollywood Reporter, and was confirmed by a spokeswoman for Endeavor Content.
Wolff was expected to be the executive producer of the project, and would be joined by the British television executive Michael Jackson.
There is heated competition in television these days for major projects, and “Fire and Fury” will most likely attract a lot of interest. Since its publication less than two weeks ago, Wolff’s book has raised questions about President Donald Trump’s fitness for office, and helped lead to the banishment of the former chief White House strategist Stephen Bannon from the president’s circle of advisers.
