WT Clients: Ned Benson Co-Writes the Script for Legal Drama ‘Mansanto’ Starring Laura Dern, Anthony Mackie and Glen Powell

Based on a true story, the new legal drama film “Mansanto” is set to star Anthony Mackie, Glen Powell, and Academy Award-winner Laura Dern.

The film follows the story of attorney Brent Wisner (Powell), who took on U.S. chemical company Monsanto in 2019 on behalf of Dewayne “Lee” Johnson (Mackie) in a landmark cancer trial. The film is the latest from writer-director John Lee Hancock, who co-wrote the script along with Michael Wisner, Alexandra Duparc, and Ned Benson.

Benson is represented by Weintraub shareholders Alan Grodin and Shaun Gordon.
