First photos from Ewan McGregor's new biopic

Ewan McGregor and his costar Oscar winner Hilary Swank were photographed on the set of their upcoming film Amelia in Toronto, Canada on Sunday. The film, set for a 2009 release is currently shooting in New York and Toronto (Union Station and Toronto International airport specifically).

Hilary Swank stars as Amelia Earhart, the legendary American aviation pioneer, noted as the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She disappeared in the summer of 1937. Ewan plays Eugene Vidal, the father of author Gore Vidal. Gene was the love of Amelia's life, and he also held the highest civilian post in aviation as the head of the Bureau of Air Commerce. The film is being directed by my favorite director Mira Nair, who makes incredible films and Hilary and Ewan are great actors. Maybe all that will finally mean an Oscar nomination for Ewan.

I honestly didn't know Ewan had been cast in this, and I don't think many people did - it's not yet listed on his filmography at imdb, though sometimes, it takes a little while for new projects to be posted up there. Anyway, you can click on the photos to enlarge them - enjoy!
