Casey Affleck Takes Boston Strangler

December 5, 2012


Casey Affleck has set his sights on a famous serial killer case with a script called Boston Strangler, Deadline reports. He'll executive produce and likely star as a detective investigating a series of murders that, to this day, are not wholly solved.

Chuck Maclean has been tasked with adapting the true story of the year-and-a-half long serial murders that claimed more than a dozen women's lives in Boston in the early 1960s. A man, Albert DeSalvo, was later arrested and confessed to the crimes although there's significant doubt as to whether or not he was the only party involved.

Kevin McCormick is attached to produce through his Langley Park Productions, set up for distribution through Warner Bros.
