Penelope Ann Miller to Play Nancy Reagan in Ronald Reagan Biopic

Recommended Posts

Dennis Quaid is starring as the 40th president with Jon Voight and Robert Davi also in the cast.

Penelope Ann Miller will play Nancy Reagan in Reagan, a biopic of former President Ronald Reagan that stars Dennis Quaid in the title role.

The movie is currently, and quietly, in production in Oklahoma, with Jon Voight and Robert Davi also in the cast.

Sean McNamara, who directed the faith-based hit Soul Surfer, is directing the indie drama that hails from Rawhide Pictures and producer Mark Joseph. Joseph previously produced the First Amendment documentary, No Safe Spaces, and co-executive produced the Martin Sheen-starring faith-based drama, The Vessel. Ralph Winter, a producer on the X-Men franchise, is also producing.

Howard Klausner and Jonas McCord penned the script which is adapting or taking inspiration from The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism and God and Ronald Reagan: A Spiritual Life, both written by conservative author Paul Kengor.

The story is said to look at Reagan’s life through the eyes of a KGB agent, a fictional character, as he tracks the actor-turned-SAG president-turned-California governor-turned-President from anti-Communist crusader in Hollywood to leader of the free world. Davi is playing Leonid Brezhnev, who ruled the Soviet  Union through the 1960s and 1970s. Voight is playing the KGB agent.

Nancy Reagan was an actress who became Reagan’s second wife and was the first lady when he was President. One of her political contributions was a major anti-drug campaign in the era.

Miller is the veteran actress who starred in Carlito’s Way, Kindergarten Cop and The Shadow. She appeared in 2011’s Oscar-winning Hollywood homage The Artist as well as 2016’s Birth of a Nation.
