Stephen Frears, who is nominated for a best director Oscar for The Queen, will exec produce a film about last year's Police killing in a London subway station of a Brazilian man who was thought to be a suicide bomber, the London Independent reported today (Wednesday). Director Henrique Goldman told the newspaper that the film will not take a political stand on the shooting OF Jean Charles de Menezes and that audiences will come to understand the rights and wrongs of the incident "very, very strongly in their bones without any preaching." The film, he said, will focus on how the killing changed the lives of de Menezes' family and friends. Following the incident, police issued an apology, but no criminal action was ever initiated against any of the officers involved.
