Four Stars Join Theron In 'Battle In Seattle'

Andre Benjamin, Woody Harrelson, Ray Liotta and Martin Henderson are set to join Charlize Theron in Battle In Seattle, says Production Weekly.

The feature, written and helmed by actor Stuart Townsend, will be a documentary-style film which follows a dozen characters swept up in the protests, which brought the World Trade Organisation’s meeting to a halt. Between 40,000 and 60,000 people protested against the WTO’s Third Ministerial on November 30, 1999. They converged on Seattle to express their concerns about the power of corporations, globalization, and the gap between fantasies of the good life and the real lives of working people everywhere.

Theron is expected to play Lou, a pregnant bystander who loses her child in the melee of protests and regards events with some objectivity. Shooting is slated to begin November 1st around Vancouver, British Columbia and Seattle.
