The project, to be directed by Barry Alexander Brown, is an adaptation of "The Wrong Side of Murder Creek: A White Southerner in the Freedom Movement", an autobiography of Bob Zellner, reported Variety.
Hacy, 29, will play Zeller's girlfriend Carol Ann in the film.
Lee and Brown are longtime collaborators, having previously worked on "She's Gotta Have It", "Do the Right Thing", "Malcolm X", "Inside Man" and most recently "BlacKkKlansman".
For "BlacKkKlansman", Lee won an Academy Award for best adapted screenplay, while Brown had received a nod for best editing.
