20th Century Studios is currently developing a brand new film “Boston Strangler” which is based on the infamous Boston Strangler murders that rocked Boston from 1962-64 and left at least 11 women dead.   The film centres on Loretta McLaughlin, the reporter who broke the story of the strangler. Along with reporter Jean Cole, McLaughlin challenged the sexism of the era, pursuing the story at personal risk and uncovering corruption that cast doubt on the identity of the strangler.

According to THR, David Dastmalchian has joined the cast.  He has previously starred in “Ant-Man”, “Dune” and “The Suicide Squad”.  It’s currently unknown what character David will be playing, but it will be a pivotal character.

This film will also star Keira Knightley, Carrie Coon, Alessandro Nivola and Chris Cooper.


“Boston Strangler” is going to be written and directed by Matt Ruskin.  With  Ridley Scott, Kevin Walsh, Michael Pruss, Tom Ackerley and Josey McNamara are producing. Sam Roston, Bronte Payne and Sarah Shepard will oversee the film.

Filming is due to begin next month in Boston and is scheduled to be released in Fall 2022.
