Events that unfolded at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021, are headed to the silver screen as filmmakers Billy Ray and Adam McKay set out to adapt the incident for film in the upcoming feature "J6," Deadline reports.
Set to direct the feature is Billy Ray, who is best known for writing the 2013 film "Captain Phillips," starring Tom Hanks as the eponymous Captain Phillips who must save his ship after it is overtaken by Somali pirates. Ray also directed the 2020 miniseries "The Comey Rule," which is a dramatic retelling of former President Donald Trump’s tense relationship with and subsequent firing of FBI Director James Comey.
Producing the feature alongside Ray is satirist Adam McKay. McKay made his name as a writer and director giving life to such hits as "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," "Step Brothers," and "The Other Guys." Most recently, however, McKay has leaned heavily into left-wing political satire, as his recent films "The Big Short," "Vice," and "Don’t Look Up" satirize the American economy, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and the Western response to climate change.
Shortly after the incidents of January 6, Ray visited Washington, D.C., to interview people involved in the kerfuffle. Ray spent time probing the memories of Capitol police officers and various members of Congress who were trapped inside the Capitol as protesters invaded the premises.
“The goal was to do a ground-level view of a momentous day,” said Ray. “It’s about protesters who became rioters and cops who became defenders of democracy.”
