It was “Untitled Todd Haynes project” and now it is “Dark Waters.” This is a shift for Todd Haynes in terms of the types of films he makes, in that this is a straight up political whistleblower environmental disaster movie. The script was written by Matthew Michael Carnahan and Mario Correa, based on true events.
Mark Ruffalo stars as Robert Bilott, a corporate attorney who, after years of defending companies from environmental lawsuits, leads one of his own against DuPont. #DarkWatersMovie
Inspired by a shocking true story, a tenacious attorney (Ruffalo) uncovers a dark secret that connects 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.
