Tripplehorn and Rennie join Catherine Keener on the film, which tells the true story of a small-town nurse who rose to worldwide attention when she stood up to powerful politicians determined to bulldoze her home and hand the land over to a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company.
Courtney Moorehead Balaker wrote the script and will direct.
Shawn Williamson’s Brightlight Pictures will co-produce the film. Balaker, Ted Balaker and Joel Soisson will produce, with Shawn Williamson executive producing.
The film’s script was a finalist for the 2015 Athena List, which recognizes the best and most marketable unproduced screenplays with strong female protagonists.
