Bradlee Featured in "Spotlight"
"THE KID" isn't the only project involving Ben in the works. Much further along is "Spotlight," a film about the Boston Globe's investigation into the Catholic Church sexual abuse crisis for which the paper was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for public service in 2003. As Deputy Managing Editor, Ben oversaw the four reporters on the Spotlight Team, the Globe investigative unit, which produced the stories. Reporters Walter Robinson, Mike Rezendes, Sacha Pfeiffer and Matt Carroll are featured in the movie, along with Bradlee (who is played by John Slattery of "Mad Men" fame) and the Globe's editor at the time, Marty Baron. The film has wrapped and will be released in the fall of 2015.
