Deadline is reporting that Anne Hathaway (Ocean’s 8), Tim Robbins (Here and Now), Bill Pullman (The Sinner), Bill Camp (Vice), Victor Garber (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Mare Winningham (The Affair) and William Jackson Harper (The Good Place) are joining Mark Ruffalo in Todd Haynes’ (Carol, Wonderstruck) untitled drama about the DuPont pollution scandal.
The film, formerly titled Dry Run, is based upon the New York Times Magazine article ‘The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare’ and sees Ruffalo portraying Robert Bilott, a corporate defense attorney whose environmental suit against the DuPont conglomerate exposed decades of chemical pollution.
Filming on the legal drama is set to get underway this coming week, with Haynes directing from a script by Mario Correa (Let Her Speak) and Matthew Carnahan (Deepwater Horizon). In addition to starring Ruffalo is also producing the movie with Pamela Koffler and Christine Vachon of Killer Films, while Spotlight’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King executive produce for Participant Media.
