The film is the story of the woman who took care of kidnapped newspaper heiress Patty Hearst.

American Woman is being produced by Killer Films with Semi Chellas (Mad Men producer) writing and directing.

Hong Chau is known for her work on the HBO series Treme and she played Jade in Inherent Vice for Paul Thomas Anderson. She’ll be seen next in the upcoming film Downsizing starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig and directed by Alexander Payne.

Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.

The cast also includes Christoph Waltz (Django UnchainedInglorious Basterds), Hong Chau (Inherent ViceTreme), and Jason Sudeikis (We’re the MillersSaturday Night Live).
