Elisabeth Moss has yet another epic project lined up and it looks incredible. 

The Handmaid's Tale star has signed on to star in an upcoming biopic about Rosemary Kennedy, The Hollywod Reporter claims. 

A Letter From Rosemary Kennedy will document the life of John F. Kennedy's older sister, who was lobotomised on her father's orders, when she was 23 years old.

Born in 1918, Rosemary was mentally impaired and struggled to fit in with her highly ambitious family.

Her nephew, Timothy Shriver, spoke to People in 2014 and said: "The shame of her disability was our family secret."

"I don't know how, other than just from sheer devastation, [Joe Sr.] could allow her to disappear so much from his life. He had to be destroyed by it." 

The news comes off the back of an already successful year for Moss, taking home her second Golden Globe in January for her role as Ofred in Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale

The second season of the award-winning series will premiere on April 25.
