LOS ANGELES - Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese will get up close and personal with Bill Clinton in a documentary about the former U.S. president, cable channel HBO said on Monday.

The documentary, which has full cooperation from Clinton, promises to delve into the two-term Democrat's views on politics, history, culture and the world.

"A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world," the director and producer said in a statement.

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

HBO would not say when filming would start or when the documentary was slated to air.
