Remember how two separate O.J. Simpson epics held our attention all year? The same thing might happen sometime soon, only this time with Roger Ailes at the center of Hollywood’s attention. In addition to the previously announced TV miniseries, there’s now another project in the works about Ailes’s ouster, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Annapurna Pictures has signed on to produce a pitch from one of The Big Short’s Oscar-winning writers, Charles Randolph. In this go-around, Megyn Kelly’s story will be the star: The pitch is said to center on the women whose sexual-harassment allegations brought the former Fox News chairman’s reign to a screeching halt. Looks like Ailes is about to be juiced.
