Director Barry Levinson took on politics from a humorous standpoint in 1997's Wag the Dog, but now it looks like he's ready to get serious about the subject.
Levinson has been "tapped to direct" a "political thriller" which is based on the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, and is tentatively titled O.K.C.
The screenplay's being written by Clay Wold, and it's based on "the story of his brother, who was a young legal clerk on the defense team for Timothy McVeigh."
If they move forward with this project, we just hope they handle it with lots of care.
Would U watch a film about the Oklahoma City bombing?
