Jack Reynor Joins Cast of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Biopic ‘On the Basis of Sex’
04 Oct 2017 : Nathan Griffin
Jack Reynor is one of the latest actors to be added to the Ginsburg Biopic, along with Kathy Bates, Justin Theroux, Sam Waterson, Stephen Root and Cailee Spaeny who have all been confirmed.

The biopic, which already stars Felicity Jones and Armie Hammer, will follow the story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Jones), her struggles for equal rights and what she had to overcome in order to become a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

Filming has already begun in Montreal with Mimi Leader directing a script by Ginsburg’s nephew, Daniel Stiepleman. The biopic is produced by Robert W. Cort and Betsy Danbury, edited by Michelle Tesoro and Michael Grady is DOP. The film is being casted by Victoria Thomas and the production designer is Nelson Coates.

Speaking about the film Director - Mimi Leader, said:

"Our story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg resonates with me on so many levels – from the inspiring partnership she found in her marriage, to overcoming adversity as a woman and discovering the strength of her own voice, to her empathetic commitment to those in need of a voice no matter their gender, race, status or religious beliefs, in these tumultuous times, stories like this speak to the heart of humanity and remind us what it means to lead with love and compassion as the way forward."

No release date has been announced for the film, which is being produced by Participant Media and Robert Cort Productions.

Reynor is also set to star in Andy Serkis’ highly anticipated motion capture remake of ‘The Jungle Book,’ which is set to release in 2018.
