Published: 14th October 2021

The Burial, starring Jamie Foxx has been in development for some time now, and the latest is that actor Tommy Lee Jones will replace his The Fugitives co-star Harrison Ford in the film.

The film is centered on a legal battle over a funeral home chain in the 1990s. It is based on Jonathan Harr’s 1999 article in the New Yorker about the contractual dispute case between funeral home executive Ray Loewen and Mississippi businessman Jeremiah O’Keefe, who hired the flamboyant Willie Gary as an attorney. The jury awarded O’Keefe a total of $500 million, which would bankrupt Loewen’s company.

Novitiate director Maggie Betts has been signed to direct the script, which is written by Pulitzer Prize winner Doug Wright.

Amazon Studios, Bobby Shriver Inc, and Double Nickel Entertainment are producing The Burial, while Bobby Shriver, Double Nickel’s Adam Richman, and Jenette Kahn, along with Datari Turner, are the producers.
