Uma Thurman to Play Anti-Gay Activist Anita Bryant in New Biopic



Uma Thurman has been cast as anti-gay activist Anita Bryant in Anita, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

The film follows Bryant, a former celebrity singer and orange juice spokeswoman, who, when she allows a gay screenwriter into her home, is forced to confront her past as an anti-gay Christian crusader who successfully campaigned to overturn a gay rights law in Florida and destroyed her show biz career in the process.

The film will be directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman from a screenplay by Chad Hodge and produced by Darren Star, Howard Rosenman, Jeffrey Schwarz and Dennis Erdman.

I've loved these guys since Celluloid Closet. I think I wore down my VHS copy when that first came out (I taped it off HBO).
