ABC News' Sheila Marikar reports:

Sarah Palin — movie star?

It's a title the former Alaska governor may soon take on. Palin aide Tim Crawford confirmed to ABC News today that a documentary about Palin's governorship exists, and she "loves it."

The documentary, titled "The Undefeated," was first reported today by the blog Real Clear Politics. According to the site, after November's mid-term elections, Palin and aide Rebecca Mansour (the same aide whose incendiary Twitter messages were leaked via The Daily Caller today) hatched a plan to get conservative filmmaker Stephen K. Bannon to make a series of videos championing Palin's two-and-a-half years as governor of Alaska and dismissing questions about why she resigned from office in July 2009.

Real Clear Politics reports that Bannon took "complete control" of the project and put $1 million of his own money behind it. He ended up with a "two-hour-long, sweeping epic" that will premiere in Iowa in June. The blog writes that Bannon paints Palin as a "Joan of Arc-like figure" using news footage from Palin's political rise and original interviews with her colleagues.

The film also includes sound bites from famous Palin detractors including Rosie O'Donnell, Matt Damon, Bill Maher, David Letterman, Howard Stern and comedian Louis C.K.

According to Real Clear Politics, Bannon screened the film for Palin and her husband last Wednesday in Arizona, where Palin is rumored to have bought a house.
