The "Truth" Lies Within Rod Lurie


The "Truth" Lies Within Rod Lurie


"Resurrecting the Champ" director Rod Lurie will next helm a drama flick entitled "Nothing But the Truth" for Yari Film Group.

Extending his collaboration with Yari Film Group on the heels of the upcoming "Resurrecting the Champ", Rod Lurie has given his commitment to direct for the studio a new drama feature titled "Nothing But the Truth", which centers on a D.C.-based female newspaper reporter who outs a CIA agent and gets imprisoned for refusing to reveal her source.

Pic is said to parallel the case of Valerie Plame, whose status as a CIA agent was exposed in the media following the publication of a New York Times article written by Ambassador Joe Wilson. Lurie, who also penned the script, is aiming to start production on the flick well ahead of Warner Bros. Pictures' untitled biopic of Plame that Akiva Goldsman is producing.

While Marc Frydman is confirmed to produce with Yari financing, talks are still underway for the cast lineup. It is reported that the likes of Kate Beckinsale, Matt Dillon, Vera Farmiga, Edie Falco, and Alan Alda are all engaged in negotiations to play the journalist, the prosecutor, the CIA agent, the editor of the newspaper that published the story, and the attorney who tries to free the reporter from jail, respectively.
