The New York Post is reporting* that Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry), who seems to gravitate to butch roles despite possessing what the scientists call "nice cans", has signed on to play aviatrix Amelia Earhardt.
Earhardt, of course, was the famous pilot who became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, but vanished over the Pacific in 1937 while trying to become the first woman to circumnavigate the globe.
Currently, little is known about the project. Tentative title? Girls Can’t Fly.
