As the clerical abuse scandal continues to spread across Europe and South America, this Interesting tidbit came across the wire this morning: The group of Boston Globe reporters who reported the story on the U.S. scandals in 2002 just inked a deal with movie producers.
According to Deadline New York, the film being developed would be in the vein of All the President’s Men , the story following Post reporters Woodward and Bernstein as they pieced together the burglary coverup by Nixon and company.
Interestingly, Post editor Ben Bradlee — who oversaw Woodward and Bernstein’s work and provided key drama to the movie version (portrayed by Jason Robards) — has a son Ben Bradlee, Jr., who worked on the Globe’s priest investigation. Bradlee Jr. is one of the journalists who will be cooperating with movie.
