The 2024 US presidential election promises to be eventful. Recently, Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States, confirmed his candidacy for a new term, aiming to succeed his Democratic rival Joe Biden. An announcement that already seems to have repercussions on other circles, as evidenced by an article by The Ankler. Indeed, the American media argues that Apple has just canceled the biopic project on Donald Trump in stride. He was to look back on his presidency and his career as a businessman in real estate. The film was based on the biography Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America by Maggie Haberman, released on 4 last October and already a New York Times bestseller. The book deciphers the presidency of Trump through his past, based in particular on his youth in Queens and his career as a real estate developer. In the United States, Confidence Man is already a hit, with more than 100,000 copies sold. It is not yet known when it will be published in France. The Ankler evokes several tracks concerning the cancellation of the film by Apple. First, because Hollywood would see more and more of a bad eye the biopics on controversial political personalities. Then, because it could be more of a postponement than a cancellation, with the new candidacy of Donald Trump. His political life should resume and the majority of American polls already give him the winner of the Republican primary. Basically, the story of Trump’s presidency is not over yet and Apple could wait until the end of its potential future mandate to revive the biopic project. also cautious with the series This England, where Kenneth Branagh plays Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who looks back on Brexit and the first months of the politician’s mandate, marked by the Covid-19 pandemic.
