Swank Charts Betty Anne Waters

Hilary Swank will serve as executive producer and star of the drama “Betty Anne Waters” for Omega Entertainment reports Variety.

Swank will play the title role in the true story of a high school dropout who would not give up her belief that her brother, Kenneth, had been wrongfully convicted of murder.

In between raising kids alone and waiting tables, she worked her way through college and law school so she could represent her brother after he’d used up his attempts to appeal his conviction through public defenders.

Pamela Gray penned and Tony Goldwyn directs the project which will shoot in January in Michigan.
