Church's sex abuse cases to become film

2013-04-03 17:33
Los Angeles - Hollywood studio DreamWorks and production company Participant Media have secured the rights to an account of the Catholic Church's coverup of sex abuse cases.

The film's backers bought movie rights to the story of how The Boston Globe newspaper's investigative team uncovered how the Boston archdiocese conspired to hide cases of child molestation by priests.

Their articles led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law in 2002. The newspaper won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for public service reporting.

Tom McCarthy, director of The Station Agent and The Visitor, is to helm the movie and co-write the script.

    Papa Frank will be none to pleased for sure for sure. Good move to emphasise that these were cover-ups of criminal acts perpetrated by the clergy in every country where the church operates. Thousands of young lives were destroyed by these despicable acts. Child rape has been so prevalent that it became the favourite international sport for the men in dresses and silly hats.
