In about two months it will be streaming The Boston Strangler, the 20th Century Studios true-crime thriller from the imagination of writer-director, Matt Ruskin, about the pioneering female journalists who chronicled the story of the infamous 1960s Boston Strangler murders. The film will debut on March 17, 2023 exclusively on Hulu in the United States, on Star+ in Latin America and on Star within Disney+ in Italy.
The Boston Strangler stars two-time Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game, Pride and Prejudice), Emmy nominee Carrie Coon (Fargo, The Gilded Age), by Alessandro Nivola (Amsterdam), David Dastmalchian (Dunes), Morgan Spector (Homeland), Bill Camp (The Joker) and Academy Award winner Chris Cooper (The Orchid Thief).
The film follows Loretta McLaughlin (Keira Knightley), a reporter for the Record-American newspaper, who becomes the first reporter to find a correlation between the Boston Strangler murders. As the mysterious killer claims more and more victims, Loretta tries to continue her investigation together with colleague and confidante Jean Cole (Carrie Coon), but the duo find themselves hampered by the rampant sexism of the time. Nonetheless, McLaughlin and Cole continue the story at great personal risk and risking their own lives in an attempt to uncover the truth.
Written and directed by Matt Ruskin (The courage to fight), the film is produced by Ridley Scott (Survivor – The Martian), Kevin J. Walsh (House of Guccii), Michael Pruss (American Woman), Josey McNamara (A promising woman) and Tom Ackerley (Tonya), while Michael Fottrell (Fast & Furious 8) and Sam Roston will serve as executive producers.
