The subject matter they can turn into movies defies human logic. Then again when you have movies like Soul Plane, Snakes On A Plane, or Howard The Duck, then you know just about anything can have its moment in cinematic history.
Well now it looks like there is a new comedy on the horizon, a film based on the Obama-Era White House!
Yep, you read right, a comedy about President Barack Obama’s eight year stint in the White House is on its way!

So, according to The Hollywood Reporter, From The Corner of the Oval is a two part deal! We hear Beck Dorey-Stein, the former stenographer, has pitched the idea of a book–also titled “The Corner of the Oval” which got picked up by Universal to turn into a film.
Long story short, the storyline follows a waitress who ended up working in the White House. Short story long, the waitress, a woman, lives in Washington, D.C. and is at an “all-time career low;” but life couldn’t keep her down. Life takes a turn for her which landed her in the White House “navigating a series of misadventures in life and love.” There is not concrete air date for the movie–however we hear that the book will be published in 2018.
I know you’re wondering: “how much will the film focus on the Obamas?!” I had the same thought!
The Jasmine Brand reports that the movie will focus less on the fort family, and more on the White House and it’s staffer
We are not sure how to feel about this film, but right now we can all use some laughter and I’m sure there were some pretty crazy things that went down in The Oval Office during Obama’s time. Will you be watching? Comment below?
