A Movie About Conservative Newsman Matt Drudge Is in Production!

CNN said that Jeff Kwatinetz’s production company, Prospect Park, has bought the rights to journalist Matthew Lysiak’s book “The Drudge Revolution,” which is a biography of conservative news mogul Matt Drudge.

Lysiak, Prospect Park said, has also written the script for the film about the Drudge Report founder.
In a statement to CNN, Ben Hurwitz, who is in charge of the project, said, “At its heart, Matthew’s brilliant script is both a fascinating character portrait of a troubled and fearless man full of contradictions and a deep dive into the disruptor who used the internet to challenge and break up the American Elite’s narrative.”
“You can draw a straight line from Drudge to where we are today as a country in terms of speech, for better and for worse,” Hurwitz said.
Lysiak said he could not be “more excited” to be partnering with Kwatinetz and Hurwitz “to bring this unique story of the most influential journalist or our generation to a broader audience.”
The Drudge film is the second to be announced in recent days.
Last week, Cross Creek Pictures said that it had bought a script about Drudge that is about how he rose to power during the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton. The story about Clinton’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky was first told by Drudge.

In “Impeachment: American Crime Story,” which aired on FX last year and was based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book about Clinton’s sex scandal, Billy Eichner played Drudge.
Drudge has been a powerful member of the conservative news media for a long time. He started The Drudge Report, which is one of the most popular news websites in the country, in 1995.
At first, Drudge was a supporter of former President Donald Trump, but in recent years, conservatives have said that he turned against Trump near the end of his term.
