Jones (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) will next be seen as would-be Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in the drama On the Basis of Sex. She also is attached to star in Call Me by Your Name helmer Luca Guadagnino's next project, a retelling of the classic ballet Swan Lake set up at Universal.
