De Palma is Redacted

According to Production Weekly, Brian De Palma's follow-up to the loved by few, not really liked by many BLACK DAHLIA is going to be REDACTED, a war drama based on the recent events surrounding the rape and murder of a 14-year old Iraqi girl and the killing of three of her family members by four US soldiers. Oddly enough, this will be the second De Palma movie to deal with such a thing; his CASUALTIES OF WAR centered around five U.S. soldiers during the Vietnam War, four of whom kidnap and rape a young villager. In a move that's decidedly un-De Palma-esque, however, REDACTED will be cobbled together from documentary footage, trial coverage, video from news broadcasts, YouTube posts, and excerpts from one of the soldier’s video blogs. Production on the movie is scheduled to begin in April. De Palma is also attached to the prequel THE UNTOUCHABLES: CAPONE RISING.

Extra Tidbit: It was announced a while back that Nick Broomfield, a noted documentarian, is centering one his first non-docs around very similiar, perhaps even related, events. Kind of funny when you consider that REDACTED, a movie that appears to be a found footage narrative, could essentially be considered De Palma's first documentary.
