Accused teen terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will make his first public appearance since being caught cowering in a shrink-wrapped boat when he’s

It hasn't even been four months since the Boston Marathon bombings rocked the nation on April 15th, but already a movie adaptation is in the works. But before you cry out, "Too soon," consider the pair behind the proposed docudrama. Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, co-writers of David O. Russell's Academy Award-winning biopic The Fighter, are heading up a drama based on a yet-to-be published book called Boston Strong. Deadline reports the pair picked up the rights to the book, which is currently being written by journalist and true crime author Casey Sherman, and Boston Herald reporter Dave Wedge.

With their book, Wedge and Sherman are hoping to capture the reaction of the people of Boston to the bombing both during the attack and the terrifying manhunt that followed - which eventually led to the killing of one suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and the capture of his younger brother/ ...
