HBO says “Scandal” star Kerry Washington will play Anita Hill in a film about Clarence Thomas’ 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

The film will be titled “Confirmation,” and Washington is also among its executive producers.

Hill’s sexual harassment allegations against Thomas put the issue at the center of a fierce national debate. Hill became a hero and a target, while Thomas was confirmed as an associate justice.

Last year saw the release of “Anita,” a documentary by the Oscar-winning filmmaker Freida Mock about the Brandeis University law professor.

HBO didn’t give other casting details or an airdate for “Confirmation” in its announcement Thursday.
