Nicole Kidman, Lars Ulrich, Rodrigo Santoro, and Clive Owen are spotted last week on the set of Hemingway & Gellhorn in Livermore, Calif., right across the bay from San Francisco (April 6).
Of course you Metallica fans recognize Lars as the drummer and founding member of the iconic band. He plays the Dutch documentarian and committed communist Joris Ivens in the new film about Ernest Hemingway and his third wife Martha Gellhorn. Ivens made the propaganda film The Spanish Earth during the Spanish Civil War, which was actually narrated by Hemingway in the English translation of the film.
Ivens, Hemingway, and Gellhorn screened the film at the White House on July 8, 1937 after having dinner with President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor.
