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

The 40-year-old's reports of a stalker famously spurred an FBI investigation, which ultimately traced incoming emails to the computer of Paula Broadwell, Petraeus' biographer.

When news broke of the affair, Petraeus quickly resigned from his post.

As reported last year, Petraeus was sentenced to two years' probation and a $100,000 fine after admitting that he leaked classified information to Broadwell.

Meanwhile, Kelley tells Page Six that her book is "beyond the narrative of one powerful man's unbridled ego, ill-timed infidelity, a jealous mistress and her relentless efforts to haunt an innocent family along with the world's most iconic military leaders."

"This story is also about the personal information in a person's e-mail, which can be collected by the government, and used against them," she added.

As for who would be cast as her character in the movie, Kelley mused, "I haven't really thought about it. Perhaps Angelina Jolie."
