Film will examine: Woman left to drown — just how horrible was it for Ted Kennedy?

Oh come on, if Ted had been a Republican I’m sure Hollywood would have talked about this the same way, right?

Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed Fifty Shades of Grey, is in talks to direct Apex Entertainment’s feature Chappaquiddick.

Mark Ciardi is producing the project, with its script just named to the 2015 Blacklist. Campbell McInnes of Apex Entertainment and Chris Cowles of DMG Entertainment are also producing.

“I’ve done a lot of true life stories, many sports stories, but this one had a deep impact on this country,” said Ciardi. “Everyone has an idea of what happened on Chappaquiddick and this strings together the events in a compelling and emotional way. You’ll see what he had to go through.”

What he had to go through? I’m sure it was terrible for Ted — in addition to getting his family to use their influence to cover for him, he had to go buy a new car and everything!

Here’s a gem from the Hollywood Reporter’s article:

The Senator struggles to follow his own moral compass and simultaneously protect his family’s legacy, all while simply trying to keep his own political ambitions alive.

Nice try, but his “moral compass” was in the trunk and he left that behind too.
