Will Michael Cohen’s Life Become A Movie?
Michael Cohen’s story may soon be told on the big screen.
Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, was reportedly spotted at a breakfast meeting with Hollywood producer Lawrence Bender, known for “Pulp Fiction” and “Inglourious Basterds,” Page Six reported.
Cohen’s attorney David Schwartz confirmed producers’ movie aspirations but quelled rumors of progress, telling Page Six: “There is a lot of interest in Michael’s story, but he isn’t open to doing anything at the moment because of continuing investigations.”
Earlier this month, Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in making illegal hush-money payments to women to help Trump’s 2016 election campaign and making false statements to Congress about his attempts at a Trump Tower deal in Moscow during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Cohen, who once said he would take a bullet for the president, began distancing himself from Trump over the summer. He has reportedly spent 70 hours in interviews with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecutors and other federal investigators in cooperation with the Russia probe.
