In attesa dell'uscita di I Want to Believe nei cinema di tutto il mondo, Gillian sta programmando le sue future attività.
Secondo Variety l'attrice interpreterà un film sulla vita di Martha Gellhorn, una donna corrispondente di guerra che si è occupata, ad esempio, della guerra civile spagnola e del conflitto in Vietnam.
Il film sarà tratto dal libro "Gellhorn: A Twentieth-Century Life" biografia del 2004 scritta da Caroline Moorehead, di cui la compagnia di Gillian Anderson, la Fiddlehead Prods, ha acquistato tutti i diritti.
Actress to produce, star in journalist's biopic
Gillian Anderson will star in and produce a biopic of Martha Gellhorn, a trailblazing female war correspondent who covered conflicts from the Spanish Civil War to Vietnam and weathered strife in personal relationships that included a failed marriage to Ernest Hemingway.
Anderson's company, Fiddlehead Prods., has acquired "Gellhorn: A Twentieth-Century Life," a 2004 biography by Caroline Moorehead. British playwright and screenwriter Sharman Macdonald is penning the feature adaptation.
Anderson, who opens July 25 in 20th Century Fox film "The X-Files: I Want to Believe," will play Gellhorn.
Deborah Newmyer and Michael Glassman of Outlaw Prods. will produce with Sarah Radclyffe. Latter recently produced "The Edge of Love," which Macdonald scripted.
"Martha Gellhorn was one of the most respected journalists of this century, and I thought Caroline's biography effectively encompassed her rich and complex life," Anderson said.
Anderson will star as Nora in a production of Ibsen's "A Doll's House" that will open at London's Donmar Warehouse next spring.
