Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton and More to Star in Boston Priest Pedophile Drama SPOTLIGHT

Deadline writes that Open Road is developing SPOTLIGHT, a film centering on the Boston Globe's investigation into pedophile priests in the Catholic Church. Tom McCarthy directs from a script he co-wrote with Josh Singer (The West Wing). Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton, Aaron Eckhart, Liev Shreiber and Stanley Tucci are set to star.

Read the original report here.

SPOTLIGHT will follow the team of reporters and editors "that uncovered an unimaginable city-wide conspiracy to cover up clergy child abuse...Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests and opened the floodgates to other revelations of molestation and cover-ups around the world". They won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for their work.

Among the Boston Globe staff involved were Marty Baron (Schreiber), Walter Robinson (Keaton), Michael Rezendes (Ruffalo), Sacha Pfeiffer (McAdams) and Matt Carroll. Mitchell Garabedian (Tucci) was a lawyer who represented the families of the victims.

Open Road, Participant Media, eOne and Anonymous Content are joining forces on the project, which is set to begin filming in Boston and Toronto this fall.
