Last we heard, Aaron Sorkin‘s The Trial of the Chicago 7 was on hold so Sorkin could devote more time to his To Kill a Mockingbird stage production. Now, the film appears to be back on, and adding even more cast members. Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne were previously announced, and now they’re joined by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Alex Sharp, and more.
The film is based on the true story of the 1969 trial in which seven defendants were charged with conspiracy and other charges related to anti-Vietnam War protests during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. More on the Trial of the Chicago 7 cast below.
