“Contagion” and “Side Effects” scribe Scott Z. Burns is set to make his theatrical directorial debut on the political drama “Torture Report” which has just set its impressive ensemble cast.

Tim Blake Nelson, Adam Driver, Ted Levine, Michael C. Hall, Ben McKenzie, Matthew Rhys, Annette Bening and Jon Hamm will all star in the film which is set directly after the 9/11 attacks.
