HBO officials said the documentary will give Clinton a new chance to reflect on his presidency.

"This documentary, under Marty’s gifted direction, creates a unique opportunity for the president to reflect on myriad issues that have consumed his attention and passion throughout both his presidency and post-presidency," HBO CEO Richard Plepler and programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement.

Scorsese called Clinton a "towering figure" who "continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world" in a statement.

"Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure," Scorsese said.

A title and date for the movie's premiere have not been announced yet, according to The New York Times
