By: Denishea Bright

Washington, who plays the resilient Olivia Pope in ABC’s Scandal, takes a step forward into the political realm starring as attorney Anita Hill in the film. Washington also serves as an executive producer for the film which is based on the well-known 1991 sexual harassment case against Hill’s former supervisor and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Pierce is set to play Thomas.

The film was written by Susannah Grant and will be directed by Rick Famuyiwa.

According to Indiewire, production is set to start this summer.

Look out for it!
