Director Larysa Kondracki's feature debut, the indie political drama The Whistleblower, is off to a good start with the casting of Rachel Weisz.

Rachel Weisz for The Whistleblower


Based on a true story, The Whistleblower chronicles the trials of a female cop from Nebraska who serves as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and exposes a United Nations cover-up of a sex trafficking scandal. .

Kondracki wrote the script with Ellis Kirwin, which they based on the story of Kathryn Bolkovac, who traveled to Bosnia in 1999 as a U.N. peacekeeper.

The project was originally set up at Focus Features, but HBO Films recently picked it up in turnaround.

Weisz has got quite a few films coming our way including The Brothers Bloom and The Lovely Bones.
