Aaron Sorkin has had a script, The Trial of the Chicago 7, kicking around at DreamWorks for half a decade. Now Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Supremacy, Captain Phillips) is nearing a deal to direct the story about a 1969 trial "arising out of the protesters vs. police violent rioting at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago that transfixed the nation because of its counter-culture and leftist mayhem intended to undermine the U.S. government." Juicy roles shall abound.
