Director Kathryn Bigelow and her Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty writer Mark Boal are teaming up for another truth-inspired film that we're almost certainly going to nominate for some awards. Annapurna Pictures has announced that Bigelow will this summer be filming a yet-untitled crime drama set against the days of rioting in Detroit in the summer of 1967. Boal has written the script and will produce alongside Bigelow and Annapurna's Megan Ellison and Matthew Budman. Spoiler alert: it doesn't go great for Detroit. Pretty much ever.
