Morena Baccarin (Deadpool, Gotham) has joined the cast of the XYZ Films untitled scripted John DeLorean documentary, according to Deadline. Baccarin will play Christina Ferrare, the wife of John DeLorean, who will be played by Alec Baldwin (Saturday Night Live, The Departed).

A documentary fused with narrative scenes, this portrait of John Z. DeLorean covers the enigmatic automaker’s rise to stardom and shocking fall from grace. Interviews with colleagues, employees, lawyers, friends and family who knew him best are interspersed with dramatized vignettes, including a performance by Alec Baldwin – as they all endeavor in their own ways to uncover the real DeLorean.

She played Adria in the series Stargate SG-1 and the follow-up film Stargate: The Ark of Truth, and Anna in the 2009 TV series V.
