According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dastmalchian has been cast in an unspecified but pivotal role. He joins an ensemble that includes the likes of Keira Knightley, Carrie Coon, Alessandro Nivola and Chris Cooper.

Helmed by Matt Ruskin, the film will depict the string of murders that haunted Boston between 1962 and 1964.

The film focuses on the reporter who first covered the murders, Loretta McLaughlin (Knightley), and her pursuit to uncover the truth despite misogyny, corruption and great personal risk.
