Michelle Rodriguez, Jennifer Carpenter, Channing Tatum, and Tzi Ma have joined the cast of "Battle in Seattle."
More talents are being picked up for "Battle in Seattle" following the recent inclusion of Woody Harrelson, Ray Liotta, Andre Benjamin, and Martin Henderson. Production Weekly reported that Michelle Rodriguez, Jennifer Carpenter, Channing Tatum, and Tzi Ma have all been added to the bulging cast list toplined by Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron.
Written and directed by Irish actor Stuart Townsend, the project is said to use interlocking strands similar to that in "Crash" in presenting the story of the 1999 World Trade Organization and the ensuing riots from various perspectives of protesters, pedestrians, politicos, police and WTO delegates.
Principal photography on the movie is scheduled to start on November 6 this year using locations around Vancouver, British Columbia and Seattle, Washington. Theron will probably portray a pregnant bystander named Lou who loses her child during the protest and regards events with some objectivity.
