ABC is making a movie on Donald Trump, the New York real-estate magnate turned reality TV star with his "The Apprentice" show, reports E! Online.
ABC has fast-tracked development on the unauthorized biopic of Trump but there is no word on who will play lead role in the tele-flick, says the report. Producers plan to start shooting as early as next month.
The TV movie will be based on Gwenda Blair's The Trumps: Three Generations That Built an Empire and focus on Trump's personal life and boardroom dealings over the past quarter century as he ascended to the top of America's business world, says the report.
"Donald Trump is the American version of royalty," Quinn Taylor, senior vice president of movies and miniseries at ABC, told the Hollywood Reporter. "He's probably one of the most fascinating and intriguing men of my generation who has continually kept himself at the top of his game. That he was able to do it is worth exploring."
