Fresh from "The Last King of Scotland", Gillian Anderson is reported to have toplined Sandra Nettelbeck's gut-wrenching drama "Helen."

Smoothly launching back her acting career back on the track with "Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story" and "The Last King of Scotland", Gillian Anderson has reportedly given her commitment to star in a gut-wrenching drama entitled simply "Helen."

Marking the first English-language feature from German writer/director Sandra Nettelbeck, the picture will find the Chicago-born actress as a talented professor forced to come to terms with her clinical depression. Filming is slated to begin September this year in the U.S. under Berlin-based Egoli Tossell banner in collaboration with Echo Lake Productions supported by German regional subsidy Filmstiftung NRW.

"It's the story of a successful woman who has it all but whose life falls apart as a result of this disease," said Egoli Tossell's Jens Meurer described. "It's also about her overcoming the illness against all the odds."
