Foursome hit paydirt in Theron mining film
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Woody Harrelson, Sean Bean,
Michelle Monaghan and Richard Jenkins are joining Charlize Theron
in a fact-based movie about sexual harrassment at a mining company.
New Zealand director Niki Caro ("Whale Rider") will start shooting the
untitled Warner Bros. project -- previously known as "Class Action" --
later this month in New Mexico and Minnesota.
Theron plays a single mom who rallies her female co-workers to rise
above unfair treatment at a local mining company. Harrelson will play
Theron's lawyer, while Bean will play the boyfriend of a mineworker.
Monaghan will play a mineworker, while Jenkins will play Theron's father.
Frances McDormand, Sissy Spacek and Jeremy Renner are among the cast.

The movie is inspired by the book "Class Action: The Story of Lois
Jenson and the Landmark Case That Changed Sexual Harassment Law"
by Clara Bingham and Laura Leedy Gansler.
Harrelson most recently starred in "After the Sunset," Bean in the
"Lord of the Rings" trilogy, Monaghan in "The Bourne Supremacy," and
Jenkins in "Cheaper by the Dozen."
