About Boston Strangler

The film follows Loretta McLaughlin (Keira Knightley), a reporter for the Record-American newspaper, who becomes the first journalist to connect the Boston Strangler murders. As the mysterious killer claims more and more victims, Loretta attempts to continue her investigation alongside colleague and confidante Jean Cole (Carrie Coon), yet the duo finds themselves stymied by the rampant sexism of the era. Nevertheless, McLaughlin and Cole bravely pursue the story at great personal risk, putting their own lives on the line in their quest to uncover the truth.

Joining Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game, Pride & Prejudice) and Carrie Coon (Fargo, The Gilded Age) are Alessandro Nivola (Amsterdam), David Dastmalchian (Dune), Morgan Spector (“Homeland”), Bill Camp (Joker), and Chris Cooper (Adaptation).

Boston Strangler is written and directed by Matt Ruskin (“Crown Heights”) and produced by Ridley Scott (The Martian), Kevin J. Walsh (House of Gucci), Michael Pruss (American Woman), Josey McNamara (Promising Young Woman), and Tom Ackerley (I, Tonya), with Michael Fottrell (The Fate of the Furious) and Sam Roston serving as executive producers. Sam Roston will oversee for Scott Free and Bronte Payne for LuckyChap.
