Dominik, who directed and wrote 'Killing Them Softly' and  'The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford', will be the screenwriter of the project too. Brad Pitt's production company, Plan B, is producing the film alongside Worldview Entertainment.
 
Production of film is expected to begin in August. The Oscar-nominated actress' notable films include 'The Help', 'Zero Dark Thirty' and 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted' among others .
