"Straw Dogs" director Rod Lurie will write the untitled project, which is based on the bestseller "Long Mile Home." The book tells the stories of five real-life people whose lives were changed by the tragedy at the 2013 Boston Marathon. Basil Iwanyk ("The Town") will produce, along with Kent Kubena and Lurie.
