Barry Levinson to Helm O.K.C.


Producer-director Barry Levinson has signed on to direct O.K.C., an indie drama about the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. The story is being written by Clay Wold, based on a true story about his own brother, who was a legal clerk on the defense team of bomber Timothy McVeigh. The story follows the clerk's discovery of a larger conspiracy and his struggle to expose the truth. Peter Safron and his company Safron Co. will produce. Levinson most recently directed the Golden Globe–winning You Don't Know Jack for HBO. [Deadline]
