Pollack to lead Recount
Staff and agencies
Sydney Pollack, the Oscar-winning director of Three Days of the Condor and Out of Africa, is to direct a film about the 2000 US elections that controversially brought George W Bush to power.
Entitled Recount, the movie will chronicle the month-long storm that followed election day seven years ago, when the results of the poll – which made famous hanging chads and butterfly ballots – hung on a recount of votes in Florida.
