A Bill Monroe film is in the works and we will probably get to see Maggie Gyllenhaal and her husband in the film. The film will be based on the life of the musician Bill Monroe. Maggie had this to say about her role in the film.
“Bill Monroe, who invented bluegrass 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.”
It sounds like a project that will be perfect for Maggie Gyllenhaal. Finn Taylor will be directing the movie. She is now ready for her next film this week the silly Nanny McPhee sequel.
