Barry Levinson (“You Don’t Know Jack”) is set to direct the indie drama “O.K.C.” about the real circumstances behind the bombing in Oklahoma City for Safran Co. and Deadline.
Clay Wold is penning the script based on a true story about his own brother, a young legal clerk on the defense team of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
The clerk’s determination to expose the truth led to a bigger conspiracy and nearly destroyed the young man.
Another draft of the script is due in next week and the project is being fast-tracked. Peter Safran will produce.
