Virginia Madsen added to Amelia

‘Sideways’ actress Virginia Madsen has signed on to co-star in the Amelia Earhart biopic “Amelia”.


Hilary Swank and Richard Gere have already been cast in the Mira Nair-helmed project, which chronicles the rocky relationship between the famed aviator (Swank) and publisher-promoter George Putnam (Gere), whom Earhart eventually married. Madsen will play Dorothy Binney, Putnam’s first wife.


The script will be penned by Ron Bass.


EXTRAs: Madsen claims that she was hypnotized for some of the scenes in Candyman (look into my eyes, you CAN act, you CAN act…)
