Director Bennett Miller next project, Foxcatcher, is a drama inspired by the bizarre but true story, of the fall of Du Pont heir, John Du Pont, who used his fortune to build a training center for wrestlers, but eventually murdered one, Olympian Dave Schutz.
Miller took the bold decision of choosing Steve Carell to play the homicidal heir, and now Deadline reports Sienna Miller will be joining the cast as well. Miller is set to play the wife of the ill-Olympian who will be portrayed by Mark Ruffalo.
Also on board is Channing Tatum, lined up to play Schultz’s brother. Production on Foxcatcher is set to begin this fall.
