48 year old Oscar winning actress Julia Roberts has been cast as a central character in The Gotham Group’s ‘Train Man’ movie.
The film is based on a true story about a New Yorker who became notorious for illegally driving New York’s buses, subways and trains, and Roberts shall play his lawyer.
The Gotham Group released the following statement:
“Darius McCollum’s compelling story is incredibly prescient and indicative of many of the societal problems we’re facing: mental illness, the inadequacy of the criminal justice system, the plight of the disenfranchised individuals. We couldn’t be more thrilled to share this ride with incredibly talented screenwriter Simon Stephenson and the team at FilmNation. And it’s impossible to imagine anyone more perfectly suited to embody Darius’ dedicated lawyer, Sally Butler, who has been and continues to be his saving grace, than Julia Roberts.”
