Knife Fight

Democratic consultant Chris Lehane -- who the New York Times describes as "a fervent advocate of the dark arts of politics" and who once described the finals days of the 2008 presidential campaign as "a knife fight in a telephone booth" --  is now co-wriitng a movie for release in the fall of 2012 called Knife Fight, which will star actor Rob Lowe.

Said Lehane: "The script is clearly informed by my real-life experiences, and it demonstrates how politics is really played and not how people wish it was portrayed. It will not be The American President or West Wing -- it deals with sex; with drugs; with blood spilled but does make clear it is often done for noble ends (depending on your views/philosophy)."
