Dominique Strauss Kahn fled America after charges against him for assaulting a hotel maid were dropped. Of course, similar claims have been made about the man who knows more about economics than most people and less about love than most people. Director Abel Ferrara will make the film and has asked Gerard Depardieu to portray the noted lover of women. Depardieu believes he has the ability to depict those whose souls are dark and mysterious.
Of course, such a film is predicated on the assumption that Dominique Strauss Khan is worthy of having his love affairs portrayed on screen. Personally, we believe Depardieu has the girth to play Newt Gingrich and if one seeks a film dealing with a sexual adventurer, who but Newt?
