Here’s one for those of you who just can’t get enough of documentaries following former US presidents around on book tours. Jonathan Demme is directing your dream project.

He Comes In Peace will trail ex-president Jimmy Carter as he embarks on a signing tour for his latest release, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid and will feature the one-time pres talking about how to solve the problems of the Middle East. Good luck with that one.

"The president's book tour occurs at a crossroads where the world of religion intersects with global politics," Demme told Variety. "This picture is just an extraordinary honour for me. I loved Carter when he was president, and I've loved him more and more since he left office. He makes me feel so proud to be an American."
