'The Whistleblower' cast grows.

Telling the true story of Kathryn Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz), a UN International Police Force monitor hired by the US company DynCorp in Bosnia on a UN related contract.

Bolkovac risked her own safety when she learned of and reported on a sex trafficking ring within the company, which was contracted to hire and train police officers. Several Dyncorp employees were forced to resign, but were immune from prosecution in Bosnia.
Bolkovac lost her job, but then later sued.
First time director, Larysa Kondracki will helm the project.
It will be great to see Weisz in another political/thriller role. She was wonderful in ‘A Constant Gardener’ and highly deserved her Oscar….in the lead category mind you.
Coming on board is a very interesting cast indeed. Oscar nominee David Strathairn, international beauty – Monica Belluci and Grande Dame of theater and film, Vanessa Redgrave.
This will automatically be one of those films to watch out for next year.
