Elisabeth Moss is set to play former Congresswoman Katie Hill in the adaption of her memoir, “She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality.”
Moss has teamed up with Michael Seitzman and Jason Blum to adapt the memoir, with Seitzman writing the screenplay, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It is intended to be a streaming movie.
Moss will be producing via her production company, Love & Squalor Pictures, along with Seitzman’s Maniac Productions, and Blum’s Blumhouse Productions. Hill will be an executive producer.
Hill is a former California representative who gained recognition after unseating a Republican incumbent. After nude photos of her leaked on the Daily Mail and a right-wing blog alleged an affair, her rising political stardom began to fade.
“Her brash confidence won her powerful allies and infuriated her enemies, it was privately concealing a cycle of domestic abuse she was trapped in at home, infamously culminating in the release of intimate photos and the revelation of her own admitted personal mistakes that would eventually result in her stunning fall from grace,” according to Blumhouse.
