Bud & Bill: According to The Hollywood Reporter, filmmaker Robert Greenwald is planning a feature film titled Bud & Bill that will explore the unlikely friendship between the father of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh and the father of one of the victims in the April 1995 attack.

Greenwald and his producing partner Alys Shanti have tapped scribe Donald Martin to write the script for the feature project, and Martin has met with the two men -- Bill McVeigh and Bud Welch -- to discuss their relationship, which began during the course of Timothy McVeigh's trial.

The younger McVeigh was sentenced to death after a jury found him guilty on 11 counts related to the bombing, which took the lives of 168 people, including Welch's daughter, Julie Welch. He was executed on June 11, 2001.
