In a recent talk with ScreenCrave, Maggie Gyllenhaal (Nanny McPhee Returns) talked about a new role in an upcoming Bill Monroe biopic.

In fact, Gyllenhaal is going to co-star in this film with her husband Peter Sarsgaard that examines the music legend's life. Here is what Gyllenhaal had to say about that project:

"Bill Monroe, who invented Blue Grass music had a kind of Sid and Nancy style affair with this woman Bessie Lee Mauldin throughout his life and T-Bone Burnett's going to do the music and Callie Khouri who wrote Thelma & Louise wrote the script so we're going to do that together.

There currently isn't any release information about this film. As more news surfaces we will be sure to bring it to you.
