Another new film for Rebecca Ferguson has been revealed, as she’s set to take on the lead role in the biopic The Lady and the Panda. Based on the story of Ruth Harkness, a New York society lady who traveled to Tibet to search for the mythical bear that was said to live high up in the mountains. Her life was depicted in 2005 in the book by the same name by Vicki Constantine Croke. Harkness, who lived between 1900 and 1947, brought a panda back to the US along with her. No director or writer for the project was specified by the Swedish news outlet HD.se.
“I’ve always dreamed of traveling to Tibet and China, and we will film the entire movie in both countries. It feels really cool”, Rebecca told TT. She will shoot the movie at the same time as The Greatest Showman starts rolling, where she’ll portray (in a likely small role) Swedish singer Jenny Lind. Does The Lady and the Panda sound like a great role for Rebecca or what?!
