[gdal-dev] Ellipsoidal length of a line

I am trying to get the length of a line in python. (Not just the straight length between the first and last nodes). Using geopandas, (therefore the Shapely lib) I am getting the euclidien distance even though the dataframe holdings the line geometries has a CRS (WGS84, zone UTM 18 S). Obviously, the WGS84 Ellipsoid is not taken into account.
Can I do this with gdal/ogr?
Thanks for the help
