Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank will face off with a man accused of Holocaust denial in an adaptation of Deborah Lipstadt’s book “History On Trial”.
“Denial” dramatises historian Lipstadt and her lawyers’ efforts to prove that the events of the Holocaust were real in a legal battle against David Irving, reported Deadline.
British author Irving filed suit against Lipstadt for libel after she described some of his work as Holocaust denial.
“Denial” will be adapted for the big screen by two-time Academy Award-nominated writer David Hare (‘The Hours’ and ‘The Reader’) and “The Bodyguard” director Mick Jackson.
Swank is starring in the historical drama opposite Emmy Award winner Tom Wilkinson.
Prior to returning to the big screen for “Denial”, Swank will star on television in the family drama “The One Percent” with Ed Helms and Ed Harris.
