James Ponsoldt has a knack for getting the best out of Hollywood’s most talented young actresses, and he could turn the trick again with “Rodham.” According to TheWrap, Ponsoldt — who directed “Smashed” and the upcoming “The Spectacular Now” — has signed on to make a new biopic about Hillary Clinton.

First announced in January, “Rodham” focuses on Clinton’s early career as a young attorney on the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate scandal. (The House Judiciary Committee was responsible for impeaching President Richard Nixon.) Young Il Kim wrote the script for “Rodham,” and described the film to Politico as a “journey.”
