Amy Adams and Mark Ruffalo have been cast in a new, controversial film Spotlight alongside Michael Keaton,  Aaron Eckhart, Liev Schreiber and Stanley Tucci. The film centers around an investigation in pedophilia in the Catholic church by priests. The title refers to the Spotlight Team of the Boston Globe, who initially uncovered the scandal. The group included Globe editor Marty Baron (Schreiber) and Spotlight Team editor Walter “Robby” Robinson (Keaton) and reporters Michael Rezendes (Ruffalo), Sacha Pfeiffer (Adams), and Matt Carroll. The film will show us the year they spend interviewing alleged victims of clerical abuse and recovering documents which would reveal years of cover-ups and heinous crimes. That team actually went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2003. Tom McCarthy is set to direct the flick and, along with Josh Singer (who also wrote the Julian Assange story The Fifth Estate) is also writing the script. Spotlight will begin filming in Boston and Toronto later this autumn and is sure to be one to catch. Keep Up With PopWrapped On The Web!
