DreamWorks Studios and Participant Media have joined the untitled feature about the Catholic Church’s cover-up of its pedophile priests in Massachusetts, uncovered by the Boston Globe.
Variety reported in October that “Win Win” helmer Tom McCarthy and scribe Josh Singer (“The West Wing”) had been tapped by Anonymous Content and Rocklin/Faust to work on the project, which follows the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists who exposed the scandal. At that point, McCarthy had been working in secret for more than a year on the movie.
Steve Golin and Michael Sugar of Anonymous Content are producing with Nicole Rocklin and Blye Faust. David Mizner, who brought the project to Rocklin/Faust, will consult and serve as an associate producer.
Participant’s Jonathan King and Jeff Skoll will exec produce.
