The film, currently untitled, will center on Robert Bilott, a corporate defense attorney as he takes on one of the most prolific cases in his career: an environmental suit against the chemical company DuPont, as they’re exposed for a decades-long history of chemical pollution.

The story is being scripted by Matthew Carnahan (House of Lies) and Mario Correa with the Oscar-nominated director Todd Haynes (Carol) helming the project and Ruffalo producing alongside Killer Films’ Pamela Koffler and Christine Vachon, while Participant’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King executive producing and Bilott serving as a consultant to the story.

In addition to Hathaway and Robbins, the film has expanded its all-star cast with the additions of Emmy-nominees Bill Camp (Vice), Victor Garber (Legends of Tomorrow), Oscar-nominee Mare Winningham (The Affair), William Jackson Harper (The Good Place) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner).
