Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will attend a Hollywood fundraiser with film moguls Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg, the latter of whom is reportedly in line to become a major donor to Clinton’s expected 2016 presidential efforts.

Clinton will join Spielberg and Katzenberg at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel Nov. 8 for a gala fundraiser for the International Medical Corps, where Clinton will accept an award.

Katzenberg is a multi-million dollar donor to the super PAC Priorities USA Action, which helped re-elect President Barack Obama in 2012 by hammering Mitt Romney with negative ads focused on his work as a private equity executive. Katzenberg is expected to come up big for Priorities again in 2016.

Priorities USA Action is now reportedly positioning itself to become the leading pro-Hillary PAC specializing in the media aspect of Clinton’s presumptive campaign in 2016.

Pro-Clinton super PAC’s Ready for Hillary and Hillary FTW (For the Win) have already emerged on the Democratic side, while the Stop Hillary PAC is fighting against her.
