Ioan Gruffudd has signed on to topline Walden Media's "Amazing Grace" for director Michael Apted

The life of British anti-slavery pioneer William Wilberforce has touched actor Ioan Gruffudd that he's signed on to portray the hero in the upcoming film, "Amazing Grace." The film chronicles Wilberforce's 18th century political career, which placed him at odds with some of the most powerful men of the time, including the king.

Steven Knight wrote the screenplay, while Michael Apted will direct the movie for Walden Media. Joining the cast is Albert Finney, who is set to play John Newton, a Wilberforce confidant.
