Armie Hammer (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) has signed on to star opposite Felicity Jones (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) in On the Basis of Sex, a biopic of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Hammer will play Marty Ginsburg, husband to Jones’ Ruth Bader Ginsburg, in the film, which is being directed by Mimi Leder and follows the Ginsburgs as they bring the landmark first gender discrimination case before the Supreme Court.
Next up from Hammer is Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name, which opens in the UK in October and in the States in November. He will also appear in next year’s Hotel Mumbai, as well as reuniting with Free Fire director Ben Wheatley for Freak Shift.
