Anderson Finally Lands Her Dream Role

THE X-FILES star GILLIAN ANDERSON has finally secured funding for her dream role - she will produce and star in a film about legendary war correspondent MARTHA GELLHORN.
The 39-year-old actress has long been an admirer of Ernest Hemingway's ex-wife, who died in 1998, and her production company recently acquired the rights to the biography Gellhorn: A Twentieth Century Life.
But despite initial difficulties finding a financial backer for the project, Anderson has now reportedly been given the green light for the film.
A source tells British newspaper the Daily Express, "Gillian has been desperate to play this role. We were beginning to wonder whether it would ever happen. Gillian has rarely been so excited about a part."
The movie will reportedly begin production next year (09) after the star gives birth to her third child with husband Mark Griffiths.

brovi says: ...dream role? Well, not anymore if the media has deemed it so. It's cursed before it begins, and with old dying Hollywood lurking in the shadows to strike in vengeance ...F*** ...better to postpone untill>at least> old Hollywood is buried deep enough along with their media curse of dream role, dream role. What artist could possibly produce under such stress. Surprise them to hell...burn it! There's another path unseen. best, brovi
