Hilary set to play Amelia Earhart

Hilary Swank has signed on to star in another Oscar vehicle: a biopic about Amelia Earhart. The star was at a party in her honor for her Guerlain fragrance, My Insolence, at the Bel Air Hotel when her manager and agents had to leave to take urgent calls about the deal. Swank announced to the crowd, “If this is what it takes for my team to get me my next gig, then let’s hope that Guerlain takes us all to lunch every week.” She signed the next day to play the doomed pilot, who vanished over the Pacific in 1937 while trying to fly around the world solo.
