Keira Knightley to star in Boston Strangler movie

The new Boston Strangler film will be partially shot in Boston, Massachusetts.

I love police shows. I can’t wait for this movie to be made. It tells the story of the Boston Strangler from the perspective of journalist Loretta McLaughlin, the second. In the 1960s, female reporters fought against sexism and tried to prove that they could be as good as male reporters. This movie should be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see the parts of Boston they choose to film.

Boston Strangler, a true timeless crime

It happened so long ago and many other true crimes have caught the attention of the nation as we tend to forget how revolutionary the story of the Boston Strangler was. Matt Ruskin will write and direct the film, while Ridley Scott will produce it. So many women were terrified and on edge during the sixties with the Boston Strangler on the loose.


Besides being a true story of a crime, the story will really focus on the story of Loretta McLaughlin, who was the pioneering journalist who first put all the pieces together and connected the fact that she was the culprit. According to “McLaughlin followed the story at great personal risk and uncovered corruption that cast doubt on the true identity of the Boston Strangler.” Loretta McLaughlin and journalist Jean Cole were truly pioneers of female journalism. Ruskin is from Boston and has done extensive research on history and has spoken with the McLaughlin and Cole families. It sounds like a great movie and I love Keira Knightley in everything, so you may have to walk the streets of Boston looking for film crews.
