The Mummy actress Rachel Weisz has signed on to play a cop in a political drama The Whistleblower.
The film, in which Larysa Kondracki makes her directorial debut, chronicles the trials of a female cop from Nebraska who serves as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and exposes a UN cover-up of a sex trafficking scandal, Variety online reported.
Kondracki and Eilis Kirwan wrote the film, which will shoot in Budapest. The pair based the screenplay on the story of Kathryn Bolkovac, who travelled to Bosnia in 1999 as a UN peacekeeper.
Weisz will be next seen in Peter Jackson's 'The Lovely Bones' and Alejandro Amenabar's 'Agora,' which will be screened at this year's Cannes film festival.
