HBO has acquired the U.S. rights to do an Obama documentary for seven figures.

Edward Norton's company, Class 5 Films, had initially approached Obama in 2006 with the idea of making a film chronicling his history in politics.

Directors Amy Rice and Alicia Sams were allowed to film Obama extensively before he ran for president in 2007, and they haven't stopped shooting.
