Bening, Driver, Hamm Commit “Torture”

Annette Bening, Adam Driver, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Morrison are all in talks to star in “The Torture Report” for VICE Studios.

“Contagion” and “Side Effects” scribe Scott Z. Burns will pen and direct the film which focuses on the CIA’s rendition and interrogation program following 9/11 and is inspired by the Senate Select Intelligence Committee’s 2014 report detailing shocking accounts of extreme interrogation tactics performed on detainees.

Burns was previously attached to write and direct an HBO film based on investigative reporter Katherine Eban’s article “Rorschach And Awe” which covered similar ground, but that project is no longer in development.

Danny Gabai, Eddy Moretti, Jennifer Fox, Burns, Michael Sugar, Steven Soderbergh and Kerry Orent will produce.
