Scully does a biopic…

Gillian Anderson (The X-Files: I Want to Believe) will star in and produce a biopic of Martha Gellhorn.

Anderson will play Gellhorn, a 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 Productions, has acquired “Gellhorn: A Twentieth-Century Life,” a 2004 biography by Caroline Moorehead.

British playwright and screenwriter Sharman Macdonald is writing the feature adaptation.

Deborah Newmyer and Michael Glassman of Outlaw Productions will produce with Sarah Radclyffe.


‘The X-Files: I want to Believe’ is in cinemas August 1st.
