Helen Mirren To Play The Wife Of “Trumbo”

Helen Mirren is in talks to join Bryan Cranston in “Trumbo,” Jay Roach’s biopic about blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo for Groundswell Productions.

Trumbo’s career came to an end when he was blacklisted after he refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1947 during the committee’s investigation of Communist influences in the motion picture industry.

Mirren would play his wife, Cleo. Michael London, Janice Williams and John McNamara will produce.
