The sexual escapades of politicians has lured big crowds before. The 1998 Primary Colors based its lead character on Bill Clinton, using Joel Klein's book about the president's 1992 presidential campaign.
The good news for potential script writers is the Petraeus story keeps growing, adding new salacious details, intrigue and maybe the whiff of national security issues.
One new player is General John Allen, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces, and his emails to Tampa Bay socialite Jill Kelley, who is at the center of the Petraeus case.
Kelley is the kind of character Hollywood craves, good looking, connected and with an unusual past. As honorary consul, she joined the inner circle by throwing parties for military officers from nearby MacDill Air Force base.
In another strange twist, the investigation also includes a FBI agent who allegedly sent shirtless photos of himself to Kelley.
It's got everything it takes, said Los Angeles entertainment lawyer Jon Pfeiffer. It's like the 'Housewives of Tampa' meets 'The Bourne Affair.'
Writers and agents with tidbits not already rehashed in the news media will become the most popular people at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills.
I'm sure people are trying to get cellphone numbers and trying to reach to these people, said producer Jonathan Dana. That's the way this business works.
