Katonah Pictures has optioned the film rights to Sarah Weddington’s memoir “A Question of Choice” reports Deadline.
The story, set in 1971, deals with how the then fresh from law school 26-year-old Weddington won her first and only court case. Said case however would change history – ‘Roe v. Wade’, the landmark decision declaring anti-abortion laws unconstitutional.
Thirty years on Weddington is believed to still be the youngest person ever to argue in front of the United States Supreme Court. Chris Salvaterra and Dan Abrams will produce.
