Apr 11, 2016  •  Post A Comment

The sex scandal that brought down then-CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus is the focus of movie offers, according to a report on the New York Post’s Page Six.

Socialite Jill Kelley recently published her memoir, “Collateral Damage: Petraeus, Power, Politics and the Abuse of Privacy (The Untold Story),” and is taking offers from Hollywood, according to the report.

Kelley told the publication: “I have had several movie offers. After I did a number of interviews, people from Hollywood started calling me about a movie deal. The book is written like a movie; it reads like a thriller.”

The Post adds: “Her book describes how the scandal broke when Kelley, now 40, reported receiving threatening emails, spurring an FBI investigation, which traced the emails to the computer of Paula Broadwell, Petraeus’ biographer. Investigators found evidence that the married four-star general and Broadwell were having an affair, and he resigned as CIA director in November 2012.”
