Eddie Redmayne in talks with Aaron Sorkin for The Trial of the Chicago 7

Eddie Redmayne  / All Lights Film MagazineActor Eddie Redmayne is in negotiations to feature in director Aaron Sorkin’s political drama The Trial of the Chicago 7.

The film will narrate the story of the 1969 trial in which anti-war activists such as Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin and Tom Hayden were accused of conspiracy and incitement to riot by the US government due to the protests surrounding the 1968 Democratic National Convention.

Sorkin has penned the screenplay. Earlier, veteran director Steven Spielberg was planning to helm but a writers’ strike forced him to delay the film.

After the success of his directorial debut Molly’s Game, Sorkin officially assumed the directing duties of the new film.

The Trial of the Chicago 7 will be produced by Marc Platt.
