Oscar winner Hilary Swank has joined the cast of the Danny Boyle-directed and produced “Trust” series which deals with the 1970s kidnapping of John Paul Getty III, grandson to oil empire magnate J. Paul Getty (Donald Sutherland).
Swank will be playing Gail Getty, mother to the kidnapped child and the person responsible for paying his multi-million dollar ransom, despite the fact she’s broke. The rest of the family thought the $17 million ransom note was a joke. Even the Italian police declined to investigate.
The ten episode series will be executive produced by Boyle, Simon Beaufoy, and Christian Colson. Filming begins in June in London and Rome ahead of its premiere in January.
