(FROM VARIETY) ? Ewan McGregor will co-star with Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, and Virginia Madsen in Fox Searchlight’s Amelia Earhart biopic Amelia. The movie, directed by Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding) from a script by Ron Bass (Entrapment), focuses on the aviation legend (Swank) and her rise to fame, marriage to publisher George Putnam (Gere), and affair with Gene Vidal (McGregor), father of author Gore Vidal. McGregor will squeeze Amelia in between other projects. He’s currently wrapping shooting on I Love You Phillip Morris, alongside Jim Carrey and Leslie Mann, and is set to start work on Angels and Demons, Ron Howard’s follow-up to Da Vinci Code, some time in June. Shooting on the Earhart pic is already underway. (Variety)
