Gillian Anderson is set to star in and produce a biopic about journalist Martha Gellhorn, considered to be one of the greatest female war correspondents of the 20th century, who covered conflicts from the Spanish Civil War to Vietnam. Her personal life was equally colorful, filled with love affairs and marriages, including a marriage to Ernest Hemingway.

According to Variety, Anderson's company, Fiddlehead Prods., picked up Gellhorn: A Twentieth-Century Life, a 2004 biography by Caroline Moorehead. British playwright and screenwriter Sharman Macdonald is penning the feature adaptation.

No production date has been set.
