Maggie Gyllenhaal, Peter Sarsgaard to duet in bluegrass film

HollywoodNews.com: The life of bluegrass music pioneer, Bill Monroe, will be brought to the big screen in a feature starring real life couple Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard.

Sarsgaard is set to portray Monroe while Gyllenhaal will easily play the musician’s lover Bessie Lee Mauldin.

Digital Spy overheard Gyllenhaal saying “Bill Monroe, who invented Blue Grass music, had a kind of Sid and Nancy-style affair with this woman Bessie Lee Mauldin throughout his life.

“T-Bone Burnett’s going to do the music and Callie Khouri, who wrote ‘Thelma & Louise,’ wrote the script so we’re going to do that together.”

Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard married in May 2009.

The Monroe biopic would mark the second time that the twosome have worked together onscreen. Gyllenhaal and Sarsgaard starred alongside each other in the 2005 Sundance Film Festival entry “The Dying Gaul.” They will be appearing on stage soon in the Gotham’s Classic Stage company production of “Three Sisters” in 2011.

Gyllenhaal received a best supporting actress Oscar nominee last year for her turn in another country-themed picture “Crazy Heart.”
