British actress Minnie Driver is returning to the big screen after a stint on the FX network's critically-acclaimed series The Riches, which was cancelled in September of last year after two seasons. The new mom has been cast in Betty Anne Waters, a legal drama starring Oscar heavyweight Hilary Swank as the title character. The film is based on the true story of Waters, an unemployed, unmarried mother who puts her nose to the grindstone and earns a law degree in order to work on her brother's case after he is wrongly convicted of a murder and robbery and sent to prison for life.
Driver will play Arba, one of Waters' friends in law school who eventually lends assistance to the case. The movie begins shooting this month and Swank will executive produce the film.
