Look out Razzis! Here comes another environmentally-themed film. This time, instead of killer plants or deadly bacteria we’ve got something rooted in actual events.

Back in 1984, a chemical spillage in Bhopal, India killed almost 15,000 people. It is frequently cited as one of the world’s worst industrial disasters — and even today, more than 100,000 people have permanent injuries as a result. Groundwater around the area continues to be contaminated — and nobody is exactly sure what to do in regards to a cleanup, even more than 20 years later.

Perhaps a movie about the event will kick someone into action?

News today is that Sienna Miller is out and Mischa Barton is in for the lead role in Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain. Barton will play a young rickshaw driver who starts working in a sweatshop chemical plant. Actor/Activist Martin Sheen is also slated star. IMDB is calling for a release this year — but with Barton taking over for the lead so late, we’re guessing that will be moved back. More details here.
