Too Risque! Will You Watch a Movie Based On the Church Abuse Scandal? 


The horrors! DreamWorks has announced plans for a big film (perhaps an Oscar bait) about the Catholic Church's child sexual abuse scandal in Massachusetts. Controversy!

The studio and Participant Media have acquired film rights to the story of the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of its pedophile priests in Massachusetts uncovered by the Boston Globe according to THR.

In a move certain to spark controversy, DreamWorks Studios and Participant Media have acquired film rights to the story of the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of its pedophile priests in Massachusetts as uncovered during a yearlong investigation by the Boston Globe.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning series will be co-written by Tom McCarthy ("Win Win") and Josh Singer ("The Fifth Estate" -- the WikiLeaks movie!). McCarthy will also direct the film.

Not quite sure how to feel about this movie! But then, "Win Win" was an excellent film so McCarthy may give us a thought-provoking flick!
