Anne Hathaway and Tim Robbins board DuPont lawsuit drama
Anne Hathaway and Tim Robbins have joined the cast of an as-yet-untitled drama about the DuPont pollution scandal, alongside previously announced star Mark Ruffalo.
The actors will be directed in the film by helmer Todd Haynes, from a script penned by Matthew Carnahan and Mario Correa which is based on Nathaniel Rich’s “New York Times” article about a lawyer who took on chemical giant DuPont.
The plot will tell the true story of Robert Bilott (Ruffalo), the corporate defense attorney who challenged DuPont in an environmental suit and exposed a decades-long history of chemical pollution.
Rounding out the cast on the feature are Bill Camp (“Vice”), Victor Garber (“Argo”), Mare Winningham (“The Affair”), William Jackson Harper (“The Good Place”) and Bill Pullman (“Independence Day”). KM
