… Also new to Netflix’s slate is The Most Hated Woman In America starring Melissa Leo (The Fighter) in the true story of the controversial rise and untimely demise of Madalyn Murray O’Hair — iconoclast, opportunist, and America’s most outspoken atheist for the separation of church and state. Tommy O’Haver (An American Crime) wrote and will direct the film, and Pitch Perfect 2 producers Max Handelman and Elizabeth Banks will produce through their Brownstone Productions. Again, Netflix has worldwide rights and will release day and date with its theatrical and transactional release sometime in 2016.

O’Hair was notable for her outspoken anti-religion rhetoric and for helping remove mandatory Bible readings from public schools.

Earlier this year, Vanity Fair Confidential, a show on the Investigation Discovery network, aired a special focusing on the nature of her death. Given Netflix’s track record, you’d hope their movie covers more about her life and offers much more substance.
