Sony Classics acquires 'The Silent Man' starring Liam Neeson

Watergate drama set for a September release.

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired the North American rights to Watergate drama The Silent Man.

The Silent Man centres on “Deep Throat”, the pseudonym given to the notorious whistleblower for the Watergate scandal. The true identity of the secret informant remained a mystery and source of much public curiosity and speculation for more than 30 years. That is until, in 2005, special agent Mark Felt shockingly revealed himself as the tipster.

The Silent Man features an all-star cast including Liam Neeson in the title role of Mark Felt, Diane Lane, Marton Csokas, Josh Lucas, Tony Goldwyn, Michael C. Hall, Tom Sizemore, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ike Barinholtz, Bruce Greenwood, Brian D’Arcy James, Kate Walsh, Noah Wyle, and Maika Monroe.

Peter Landesman wrote and directed the Scott Free, MadRiver Pictures, Endurance Media, Torridon Films, and Riverstone Pictures production.
