The longer Anthony Weiner‘s New York City mayoral run festers, the more it seems to resemble a movie. The crazy twists and turns seem fit for Hollywood gold, and it’s bound to hit theaters at some point. So we’re helping Hollywood out and running through our top three ideal movies, including the titles, casts and movie posters.
Anthony Weiner: Himself
Huma Abedin: Herself
Sydney Elaine Leathers: Herself
Cameo: Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough
Reporters: Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver
Paparazzi: Bill Murray
Directed by: M. Night Shyamalan
After his political career fizzles out, Weiner will need something to keep him occupied, and who can play Weiner better than Weiner? M. Night Shyamalan brings the story to life again, but is the story what you think it is? Look out for an insane twist ending. Bill Murray will also be in it, and that alone is enough to make a great movie.
Anthony Weiner: Sean Penn
Huma Abedin: Penelope Cruz
Sydney Elaine Leathers: Christina Ricci
Cameo: Dana Bash
Reporters: Alicia Silverstone, Jennifer Garner
Paparazzi: Alec Baldwin
Directed by: James Cameron
In this dramatic retelling of the heartbreaking story, Cameron brings to life the struggles of Weiner to keep his reputation and poll numbers up, which are both falling quickly. On top of his political career, he has a marriage to take care of, but all is jeopardized by a hard-fought sexting habit that he can’t escape. Plus he loves shower scenes, so we gave him a bubble bath.
Anthony Weiner: Pauly Shore
Huma Abedin: Freida Pinto
Sydney Elaine Leathers: Snooki
Cameo: Bob Scheiffer
Reporters: Sarah Silverman, Jennifer Lawrence
Paparazzi: Quentin Tarantino
Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
A dark and comical tale of the life of a former congressman running for mayor, his online mistresses, his seemingly-loyal wife and the media following them. This will make you laugh one minute and leave you wondering what type of human-being Tarantino is the next.
