Jay Roach is set to direct 67 Shots, a drama based on the 1970 shootings at Kent State University, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The indie will be financed by Indian-American film investor Shivani Rawat and her ShivHans Pictures shingle. The project also continues a collaboration between Roach and Rawat following ShivHans financing Trumbo, the Bryan Cranston-starring biopic about blacklisted writer Dalton Trumbo.
67 Shots will revisit the protest and shootings on May 4, 1970 at Kent State, where the Ohio National Guard fired at students and left four dead. Stephen Belber is adapting the Howard Means book 67 Shots: Kent State and the End of American Innocence for the indie project.
The producing credits are shared by Rawat, Roach, Monica Levinson, Tina Fey, Jeff Richmond and Eric Gurian. Roach is repped by WME, Mosaic and attorney Howard Abramson.
