Paul Greengrass Drops Out Of “Chicago 7”

“The Bourne Ultimatum” and “Captain Phillips” director Paul Greengrass has exited DreamWorks’ long-gestating “The Trial of the Chicago 7” project.

The story chronicles the events leading up a group of activists being charged in relation to protests that took place during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago.

Greengrass is just the latest name to drop out of the Aaron Sorkin-penned project which has had the likes of Steven Spielberg, Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Stiller attached in one capacity or another.
