Armie Hammer has been cast opposite Felicity Jones in the Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic.
The Lone Ranger star will play the Supreme Court Justice’s husband Marty Ginsburg in director Mimi Leder’s On the Basis of Sex, which chronicles Ginsburg’s fight for equal rights throughout her career. The movie will center on the couple as it works together to bring the first landmark gender discrimination case in front of the Supreme Court.
Ginsburg was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1993 by then-President Bill Clinton, becoming only the second female justice and the first Jewish female justice.
Filming will reportedly begin in Montreal, Canada this month (Sep17). The movie is slated for release next year (18).
