Annette Bening, Adam Drive, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Morrison are all in talks to round out an upcoming CIA drama!
Annette Bening, Adam Driver, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Morrisonare all in talks to star in a CIA drama tentatively titled The Torture Report, which will be written and directed by The Bourne Ultimatum and Contagion scribe Scott Z. Burns. VICE Studios is handling the financing for this project, which focuses on the CIA’s rendition and interrogation program following 9/11.
Back in December 2014, the U.S. Senate Select Intelligence Committee released a 500+ page report detailing shocking accounts of extreme interrogation tactics performed on detainees, which was employed by the CIA post 9/11 during the war on terror.
Burns was previously attached to write and direct an HBO film based on investigative reporter Katherine Eban’s 2007 Vanity Fair article Rorschach And Awe, that exposed how the CIA hired two psychologists to build a torture program with the full knowledge and cooperation of the American Psychological Association. That project is no longer in development at the premium cabler.
