Three new additions to the true life thriller.
Michael C. Hall (‘Dexter’), Kyra Sedgwick (‘Man on a Ledge’) and Jennifer Jason Leigh (‘The Machinist) have boarded the John Krokidas-directed indie thriller ‘Kill Your Darlings.’ They join the principal cast of Daniel Radcliffe, Ben Foster, Elizabeth Olsen, Dane Dehaan (‘Chronicle’) and Jack Huston (‘Boardwalk Empire,’ ‘Outlander’).
Written by Krokidas and Austin Bunn, the film revolves around a murder in 1944 that drew together the great poets of the beat generation: Allen Ginsberg (Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Huston) and William S. Burroughs (Foster).
According to Deadline, Hall will play David Kammerer, Burrough’s longtime friend who was murdered by Lucien Carr (Dehaan), a classmate of Ginsberg.
Production is set to kick off in March at New York City’s Columbia University.
