FAIR GAME (The Valerie Plame Movie) With Naomi Watts Coming Soon
Summit Entertainment has acquired distribution rights for the new film, FAIR GAME. The territories include North America, Italy, Scandinavia, and Japan, according to the THR blog Risky Business.
Fair Game is based on the memoir by Valerie Plame Wilson and her husband Joseph Wilson’s book Politics of Truth. Valerie Plame Wilson was an undercover CIA agent outed by the White House in response to her husband’s negative article regarding the invasion of Iraq.
Naomi Watts plays the CIA agent and Sean Penn portrays her husband. Doug Liman will direct this fact based political thriller. Summit Entertainment was picked by the producers because of a similar philosophy of releasing films that increase awareness of issues and promote social change.
Fair Game will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival competition this month.
