Reiner has rounded up funding for this one, which will focus on a group of journalists who dug into the claims made by the Bush administration that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, which were partly used as justification for the invasion of Iraq. With the Chilcott Report that showed glaring intelligence failures now out in public, it has taken on new meaning.
Thanks to Deadline's report, we now know what a few of the cast will be doing – Biel and Marsden will be a couple, while Schiff is making a deal to play a man named 'The Usual', who serves as a deep background source for journalists on the intelligence trail. Tennie, making his film debut, will appear as a paralysed combat veteran who testifies during the US Senate hearings on the circumstances of the war.
Joey Hartstone, who also wrote LBJ, is once again on script duty here. Reiner should have the cameras rolling later this month.
