In 2015, Ginsburg said Portman had approached her about the movie. Hell, you can put young Ruth Bader Ginsburg in a full-on space rebel costume, on any planet in the universe, and I'll still watch the fuck out of that movie.

Mimi Leder is directing from Daniel Stiepleman's script, which was named to the 2014 Black List and detailed the numerous obstacles in Bader Ginsburg's fight for equal rights throughout her career. Yep, that definitely sounds like Earth. Focus Features and Participant Media are the production companies. Ginsburg - who is now 84 and remains an associate justice of the court's liberal wing - was the second female justice ever appointed after Sandra Day O'Connor. She, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan are now the only three women on the Supreme Court.

Jones' previous screen credits include the romantic drama Like Crazy, the mystery thriller Inferno, and the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything, for which she received an Oscar nomination for lead actress.
