Shooting of the indie movie is expected to start in the summer.

Jack O’Connell, Anthony Mackie, Margaret Qualley and Colm Meaney are also starring.

Benedict Andrews is directing from a script by Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse.

The story centers on attempts by the FBI to discredit Seberg through its Cointelpro program in retaliation for her support of the Black Panther Party. Those efforts included creating a false story in 1970 that the child Seberg was carrying was not fathered by her husband, but by a member of the Black Panther Party.

Mackie will portray a civil rights activist and O’Connell has been cast as an FBI agent assigned to surveil the actress.

Seberg acted in dozens of films including “Saint Joan,” “Bonjour Tristesse,” “Breathless,” and “The Mouse That Roared.”

She died in 1979 in France: authorities ruled her death a suicide, when she was found in her car.
