Casey Affleck is set to executive produce and potentially star in the hunt the serial killer thriller “Boston Strangler” for Langley Park Productions and Warner Bros. Pictures.
Affleck and Chuck Maclean co-pitched the film which covers the most haunting unsolved serial murder story in U.S. history. The public was led to believe that Albert DeSalvo was the man behind the thirteen gruesome murders of women in Boston for over a year and a half in the 1960’s.
Affleck would play an ambitious detective who is willing to risk career and life in a race to bring down the Strangler, while battling a political cover-up by corrupt politicians and lawyers trying to save their careers. There is still belief that more than one killer was involved, and that DeSalvo was a pawn in a bigger conspiracy.
Kevin McCormick is attached to produce.
