The Departed and Up in the Air actress Vera Farmiga will be Mac'ing!
The star will play former Fleetwood Mac member Christine McVie in The Drummer, a new Dennis Wilson biopic, according to WENN's exclusive report.
Farmiga is a trained pianist, so she will use her other skills in her role as McVie. She will also sing.
Actor Aaron Eckhart will play Wilson in the film, which traces the final six years of Wilson's life. McVie and Wilson had a passionate relationship and inspired one another's music.
Director Randall Miller said, "She has a number of duets with Eckhart in the film. The combination of Aaron and Vera will be pure magic."
Production starts this June.
Do you think Vera Farmiga will make a believable Christine McVie?
