CBS to produce J. Edgar Hoover TV movie

Syndicated columnist Romeo San Vicente reports that filmmakers and brothers Tony and Ridley Scott (the directors behind The Hunger and Thelma and Louise, respectively) are making a three-hour movie for CBS based on Curt Gentry's J. Edgar Hoover: The Man and the Secrets. Both the network and the producers say they want the film to explore all aspects of Hoover's life--no word yet as to whether his longtime relationship with Clyde Tolson, or purported penchant for cross-dressing, will be included.
