FilmNation Enters Development on Gender Equality Drama ‘The Civil War’

FilmNation is proud to announce The Civil War,  a 1970s-set equal rights drama written by David Kukoff. FilmNation will finance and produce.

The Civil War is the untold true story of the tense battle over ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment in 1973. This fight captivated the country and became a hotly contested issue on both sides of the gender equality movement, a debate that continues to have relevance to this day.

FilmNation will fully finance the film and produce in collaboration with Peter Heller.

The Civil War is the latest announcement in FilmNation’s new slate of in-house produced and financed films. Our latest project Arrival recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival and is set to release in the US on November. 11.
