The Trial Of The Chicago 7 Film Delayed Again

Posted by at 4:17 pm on December 12, 2018

Aaron Sorkin’s long in-development film The Trial of the Chicago 7 has been put on hold yet again.

The film took over a decade in development before it went into pre-production recently from a script penned by Molly’s Game writer/director.

Amblin Entertainment has announced that due to Sorkin’s work on adapting the classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird for Broadway, which is set to debut on Thursday, they are waiting to see how his schedule will balance out.

The true story follows protesters who disrupted the 1968 Democrat party convention with an anti-Vietnam war ‘carnival’ that turned nasty.

After the clashes, independent investigators blamed eight police officers and eight protesters. The police were not charged but the protesters were accused of inciting a riot. One was jailed for contempt, leaving the seven to fight the charges.

Steven Spielberg was planning to direct for years, but he left with the likes of Paul Greengrass and Ben Stiller looking at the project.
