Film critic turned film maker Rod Lurie will write and direct Nothing But the Truth for the Yari Film Group. Semi-based on actual events, it’ll be about a newspaper report who “outs” a CIA agent and refuses to divulge her sources.
According to Variety, the lovely Ms. Beckinsale will be joined in the political drama by Matt Dillon, Vera Farmiga, Edie Falco, and Alan Alda. The story is fictional but loosely based on recent stories in which secret agents get “outed” in the press — which is a very bad thing.
Mr. Lurie’s previous films include The Last Castle and The Contender. His next film, Resurrecting the Champ (which stars Josh Hartnett and Samuel L. Jackson), hits theaters next month.
