Adam McKay, director of Netflix hit “Don’t Look Up”, and “Shattered Glass” scribe Billy Ray are teaming on a film about the January 2021 assault on the U.S Capitol.
Kay will write and direct the film, which McKay, Todd Schulman, Josh McLaughlin, Cullen Hoback and Shane Salerno will produce.
“The goal was to do a ground-level view of a momentous day,” Ray tells Deadline. “It’s about protesters who became rioters and cops who became defenders of democracy. Someone else can tell the story of the chaos at the White House on that day. I wanted to stay in the trenches.”
