The trailer and poster for 20 Century Studios’ non-fictional crime thriller, Boston Strangler, are available now. The movie is about a group of proactive journalists who broke the story of the notorious Boston Strangler murders in the 1960s. The film stars two-time Oscar nominee Keira Knightley, Emmy nominee Carrie Coon, Alessandro Nivola, David Dastmalchian, Morgan Spector, Bill Camp, and Academy Award winner Chris Cooper.
Ridley Scott, Kevin J. Walsh, Matt Ruskin, Kevin J. Walsh, Michael Pruss, Josey McNamara, and Tom Ackerley are overseeing the production, while Michael Fottrell and Sam Roston are working as the executive producers. Similarly, Ruskin is the writer.
The film is about a Record American newspaper reporter named Loretta McLaughlin. She is among the first journalists to connect the dots for the Boston Strangler murders. As more victims appear, Loretta attempts to continue her investigation with her colleague and close friend Jean Cole. Unfortunately, the “rampant sexism of the era” causes others not to take their findings seriously. Despite this, McLaughlin and Cole work diligently to uncover the truth. Or, as the synopsis says, “bravely pursue the story at great personal risk.”
