Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" to become TV series

The rights to Michael Wolff's new book have been bought by Hollywood entertainment company Endeavor Content, which plans to adapt it for a television series, The Hollywood Reporter said Wednesday.

The explosive allegations have led to sharp criticism from the White House and its allies, who have dismissed Wolff's book as "trashy tabloid fiction".

Mr Bannon questioned the his former boss's competence in the book and Mr Trump responded by discrediting him as having lost his mind and nicknaming him "sloppy Steve". Most insisted on anonymity to discuss one of the most embarrassing episodes of Trump's presidency so far.

The publisher thanked author Michael Wolff for "taking on the planet's biggest bully", referring to Trump.

"It wasn't until late August that alarm bells were raised in the White House - when [White House communications director Hope] Hicks, Jared Kushner and their allies realized that fellow aides who had spoken with Wolff, especially Bannon, may have provided damaging anecdotes about them".

The White House has roundly condemned the book.

On the cancellation of Mr Trump's visit to the UK, the author said: I think the deeper reason is that he felt he would come to the United Kingdom and he would not receive the love he believes he deserves. But Wolff also assisted himself by painting his project as one that was sympathetic to the president and his administration. Wolff referes to how Trump was using the campaign as a pre-runner to getting better TV exposure.

Conway is mentioned dozens of times in Wolff's book, including in scenes in which he quotes her directly and describes her thoughts.

Although if HBO wants to make it a movie, something on par with Game Change, which was about the rise of Sarah Palin during the 2008 presidential election, I could also get behind that.

And then who plays Trump?
