Julia Roberts Cast As Attorney In New Film "Train Man"

Julia Roberts (Erin Brockovich, The Pelican Brief) takes on another law-related movie in Train Man. She'll play Sally Butler, the long-time lawyer for Darius McCollum, who loved to impersonate New York public transit employees in order to drive buses, trains, and subway cars. Mr. McCollum, who has Asperger's was arrested more than 20 times, the first time when he was 15.

The Gotham Group is developing the project; Simon Stephenson is writing the screenplay. More here from The Hollywood Reporter.  Here's more about Ms. Butler's defense of her client, Mr. McCollum, concerning his arrest late last year.
