Here’s some interesting news out of Hollywood.

Tyler Perry will portray former Secretary of State Colin Powell in a planned biopic on former Vice President Dick Cheney called “Backseat.”

The production is being written and directed by comedy vet Adam McKay. He says the film is about American power.

“A lot of crazy stuff happened during those eight years,” said McKay in a previous interview with Deadline, “and this is a vital puzzle piece in what got us to this moment with Donald Trump, with the world, as it is now, and Dick Cheney is at the center of it.”
