Inspired by a shocking true story, Dark Waters hits theatres on November 22, 2019, in the United States. In summary, the story showcases a tenacious attorney (Mark Ruffalo) uncovering a dark secret connecting it to a growing number of unexplained deaths due to one of the world’s largest corporations. In the process, he risks everything — his future, his family, and his own life — to expose the truth.
The actor stars beside Academy Award and Oscar winner Anne Hathaway, who plays Ruffalo’s wife in the film. Before this article, I had absolutely no idea she had ever won an Oscar. Apparently she did for the best-supporting-actress Oscar for her role as the tortured prostitute ‘Fantine’ in Les Miserables. It is also worth noting the actress was one of the highest-paid actresses in 2012 and she appeared in the Forbes Celebrity 100 list in 2009.
According to a source at Deadline, the actor was set to star in the film as early as in November 2018, whereas the rest of the crew including Anne Hathaway didn’t jump aboard until January 2019.
The film has been written for the screen by Mario Correa, Matthew Michael Carnahan. This is the first feature film for Correa. Before this, he has written for two TV documentaries in 2005 and 2012. Whereas Carnahan has been writing for movies for a while and is a veteran.
On September 21, 2018, it was announced that Todd Haynes, a long-time director from ’80s would direct the film Dry Run from a script by Matthew Carnahan.
The film is mainly shot in Ohio and Hamilton, which centers around Robert Billot, a corporate defense attorney taking on an environmental lawsuit against a chemical company that exposes a lengthy history of pollution.
It would be interesting to see Ruffalo in a suit and tie and take on a role of family-guy and a guy not so much defeated by life, since his transition from the Hulk. Are you excited for the film? I’m also rooting for some of the best performances by Ruffalo and Hathaway and some incredible chemistry between them as a couple. This is the first film I’m excited about since Far From Home, which I still haven’t got to see yet. Let us know your opinions in the comments down below.
