Maggie Gyllenhaal


The older sister of actor Jake Gyllenhaal has been reported to be tapped to star as the leading lady of the upcoming drama film partly financed by an Australian film corporation.

The star of indie drama "Sherrybaby" Maggie Gyllenhaal has reportedly been signed to star in an Aussie-U.K. co-production drama film "South Solitary". Variety reported that the actress will be starring opposite English actor Paul Bettany in the romantic drama film.

According to Screen Daily News, the 30-year-old actress is set to portray a disgraced young woman. She will share the screen with the "Wimbledon" star as Bettany has been tapped to star as the other lead character, a shell-shocked soldier. In the film penned by Shirley Barrett, Gyllenhaal will act under the direction of Barrett.

"Solitary" follows the story of Bettany's character when he is recuperating in Tasmania. The lensing of the movie is expected to start sometime in 2008 and it will take place in a remote lighthouse off the coast of the Australian island state of Tasmania. The film is one of the 10 feature films to be partly funded by the Film Finance Corporation Australia.
