She will play his wife, Ruth Mad­off, in the movie which is billed as a look be­hind-the-scenes at Mad­off ’s mas­sive Ponzi scheme, how it was per­pe­trated on the public and the trail of de­struc­tion it left in its wake. The film is based on the book of the same name by Diana Hen­riques, and has drawn ma­te­rial from Truth and Con­se­quences by Lau­rie San­dell. Wiz­ard of Lies, di­rected by Barry Levin­son and writ­ten by Sam Levin­son and John Burn­ham Schwartz, has been in the works for a long time. De Niro joined the cast nearly four years ago.
