Swank Joins Amelia Earhart Biopic

Hilary Swank has signed on to star in another Oscar vehicle: a biopic about Amelia Earhart reports The New York Post.

Swank would play the doomed pilot, who vanished over the Pacific in 1937 while trying to fly around the world solo.

The signing came after a rushed deal which saw many of her reps having to abandon attending the launch of her Guerlain fragrance, My Insolence, the other day.
