    Fuji across is a bad film for underexposure. It's critical at that point.
    I use/rate it at 50 asa in combination with rodinal or pyrocat hd,

    So 400 would be an overexposure of 3 stops.
    That would mean that your zone III (middle gray) is placed in VI.
    Be aware that your original scene zone II,IV and V will not contain detal when developed with rodinal or pyrocat-hd.

    overdeveloping your film will not get detail in these shadow regions.

    The only thing you could do is choose a developer that is capable of using the fuji across at a iso value > 100. The higher the better for your case.

    Thanks

    Underexposed film will always be that. You could try undiluted Ilford Microphen and develop for around 8-9 minutes.

    I hope you meant that EI 400 would be an under-exposure of 3 stops... Just to make it clear.
