Shooting in Autumn for “On the Basis of Sex”


After months without details on the Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s project, we finally have some news about it. According to Pop goes the news, the movie will be shot in Toronto from September 25 to November 11:

Natalie Portman will be in Toronto this fall to portray a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the film On The Basis Of Sex.

Cameras are scheduled to roll on the low-budget film from Sept. 25 to Nov. 11.

Ginsburg, now 84, has been an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States since 1993.

On The Basis Of Sex, written by Ginsburg’s nephew Daniel Stiepelman, will be directed by Mimi Leader (Deep Impact, Pay It Forward). Set in the 1970s, it focuses on Ginsburg taking — and winning — the first cases in which discrimination on the basis of sex was declared unconstitutional.

According to the website, no further details are known about the rest of the cast. Hopefully we know more in the coming weeks…
