Brian De Palma Helming Boston Stranglers


Brian De Palma (Scarface) has signed on to direct The Boston Stranglers for producer Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Motion Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The film is adapted by Alan Rosen (“Head of the Class”) from Susan Kelly’s nonfiction book “The Boston Stranglers: The Public Conviction of Albert DeSalvo and the True Story of Eleven Shocking Murders.”

The thriller will detail the early-’60s Beantown killings and their controversial resolution.

Hurd will produce, and Kevin Kelly Brown will executive produce.
