For three decades, the identity of “Deep Throat,” the anonymous source for Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein’s Watergate coverage, was one of the greatest unsolved mysteries of American politics. Numerous possible candidates were put forward, but aside from Woodward and a few others, no one knew the answer until July, 2005, when it was revealed to be Mark Felt, a former #2 man at the FBI. While the world now had a name and a face, this knowledge only raised additional questions. Who was Mark Felt and what motivated him? Why did a man who sat at the top of an institution built on confidentiality, decide to reveal secrets? These were even bigger mysteries, whose solutions held the key to how this country emerged from the nightmare of Watergate. Writer/director Peter Landesman (PARKLAND, CONCUSSION) was hired to write the screenplay for MARK FELT in 2005, before he had directed any movies, when he was known as an award-winning investigative journalist and war correspondent. At that time, Jay Roach (TRUMBO, MEET THE PARENTS) was set to direct. “Peter had written some really interesting long articles on sex trafficking and arms dealing, and had the journalistic ability to relate with his subjects and connect to what mattered to them,” says Roach. “I felt that because he had such good instincts about what drives people, what the obstacles were in their life story, that he was going to be able to translate that into writing a great screenplay.” Says Landesman: “In my worldview, events are not about history—events are about human beings. I’m fascinated by people under pressure and in crisis, and what happens to them and what they do.”
