HURD SAYS CASTING IS UNDERWAY
Producer Gale Anne Hurd is making the rounds thanks to the new Terminator movie, and the JoBlo Movie Network's Arrow In The Head has posted a teaser scoop about The Boston Stranglers from a forthcoming interview with Hurd. Hurd tells the site's Jimmy O that the upcoming Brian De Palma-directed picture has been set up at Overture Films, where Michael Moore is currently working on his sequel to Farenheit 9/11 (other projects being developed by the company, which recently developed and/or distributed Righteous Kill, Last Chance Harvey, and Sunshine Cleaning, include remakes of Let The Right One In and The Crazies). Hurd said they are casting now on The Boston Stranglers, with an aim to shoot in the fall. Here is the full text of what Hurd said, according to Arrow In The Head:
The true story of something that we… we all think we know the true story now, but we don’t. Which is that Albert DeSalvo was branded The Boston Strangler, there was a movie about him with Tony Curtis as DeSalvo. As it turns out he was never convicted of the crime. The film is set up at Overture and we’re in the process of casting. And we hope to shoot in the fall.
