President Obama, d-girl? Harvey Weinstein has revealed that the President of the United States recently sent him an unofficial film pitch. "The President sent me a book the other day and said 'Why don’t you make this into a movie?'" Weinstein told the London Times, though he was tight-lipped about the book in question. "I can’t tell you. It was a spy novel." In fact, Weinstein claims he turned the President's pitch down: "I sent him an email back saying he was the most overqualified book scout I’ve ever had," the movie mogul said. Sweet revenge?
