"Captured by the US government, Mohamedou Ould Slahi (Rahim) languishes in prison for years without charge or trial. Losing all hope, Slahi finds allies in defense attorney Nancy Hollander (Foster) and her associate Teri Duncan (Woodley).

"Together, they face countless obstacles in a desperate pursuit for justice. Their controversial advocacy, along with evidence uncovered by formidable military prosecutor Lt. Stuart Couch (Cumberbatch), eventually reveals a shocking and far reaching conspiracy" the official logline of the film read.

The movie is based on Mohamedou Ould Slahi's best-selling memoir 'Guantanamo Diary'.

Foster is a two-time Academy Award, Golden Globe and BAFTA winner, and is best known for her roles in “The Silence of the Lambs” and “Contact.” Rahim was nominated for a BAFTA for his performance in Jacques Audiard’s “A Prophet.” Woodley recently earned Golden Globe and Emmy nominations for her role in “Big Little Lies” and is best known for portraying Tris in the “Divergent” series.

Principal photography is set to begin in South Africa on 2 December.
