BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama woman has struck a deal with a Hollywood filmmaker to make a movie about her long battle for women to receive equal pay as men.

Lilly Ledbetter's long struggle to receive equal pay for the time she worked as a supervisor at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. plant in Gadsden led to the first bill Barrack Obama signed into law as president.

Ledbetter's attorney Jon Goldfarb of Birmingham says she has signed an agreement with Hollywood filmmaker Rachel Feldman. He says details about the cast or where the move will be made have not been finalized.

He says there have been efforts for a long time to make a film about Ledbetter.
