“Principal photography has begun in Virginia on Big Beach and Raindog Film’s historical drama Loving, and the full cast has been announced. The film follows the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple from Virginia who married in 1958 when interracial relationships were illegal. The pair were arrested, jailed, and then forced to move from their home state, but then waged a long legal battle that ultimately saw the Supreme Court declare such laws unconstitutional in the landmark Loving v. Virgina decision of 1967.
Joining the production are Nick Kroll as Bernie Cohen, Jon Bass as Phil Hirschkop, Marton Csokas as Sheriff Brooks, and Bill Camp as Frank Beazley. In addition, Michael Shannon will play Grey Villet, the LIFE Magazine photographer who shot the now-iconic images of the Lovings in 1965. Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga star as Richard and Mildred Loving. Inspired by the documentary The Loving Story, Loving is written and directed by Jeff Nichols…”
