Will “Truth” Previal?

Rod Lurie’s “Nothing But the Truth,” which opens next week, is loosely based on the Judith Miller-CIA leak-Valerie Plame affair, but he fears that it is close enough to perhaps be a burden for the political thriller.

He tells the New York Times, “I’m going to predict that it’s going to be held against us, because of some level of anger and contempt toward Judith.”

Miller did not participate in the movie, but she did meet with star Kate Beckinsdale, who plays a reporter who goes to jail rather than give up her source. Miller’s attorney, Floyd Abrams, does have a cameo in the movie, and there is one reference made to the former New York Times reporter.

Still in development is the movie version of Valerie Plame’s memoir, which is being adapted for a feature by Jerry and Janet Zucker. The couple are friends with Plame and Joseph Wilson, and Plame recently participated in a seminar series they organized with the National Science Foundation.
