The film will follow Reeves as defense attorney Richard Ramsay, who faces a tough case defending seventeen-year old murder suspect Mike Lassiter (Basso).

With no information from his client and little to work off of otherwise, Ramsay enlists the help of Janelle (Mbatha-Raw), a young lawyer determined to find out the truth about what happened that day. Belushi will play Mike's father and Zellweger plays his mother.

Production kicks off this week in New Orleans.

Belushi is repped by ICM Partners and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
