Broussard to play aviatrix Amelia Earhart

Rebecca Broussard ("Mars Attacks") will star as aviatrix Amelia Earhart in "Amelia & George", a new film from writer-director Richard Martini. Randy Quaid is in talks to play her husband George Putnam. Director Martini says, "The star of this film is the story, and I can promise that it will be unlike any story of her ever told before, including recreations of eyewitness accounts. Locations are to be determined, but we’re aiming for a summer start date." "Amelia & George" is one of two projects on the subject being made, the other is from New Line called "I Was Amelia Earhart".
