Felicity Jones to shoot ‘On The Basis Of Sex’ in Toronto

Pop Goes The News — Felicity Jones will be in Toronto this fall to portray a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the film On The Basis Of Sex.

Cameras are scheduled to roll on the low-budget film from Sept. 25 to Nov. 11.

Ginsburg, now 84, has been an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States since 1993.

On The Basis Of Sex, written by Ginsburg’s nephew Daniel Stiepelman, will be directed by Mimi Leder (Deep Impact, Pay It Forward). Set in the 1970s, it focuses on Ginsburg taking — and winning — the first cases in which discrimination on the basis of sex was declared unconstitutional.

Natalie Portman was originally set to play Ginsburg in the film.
