Young stars join Aaron Eckhart and Vera Farmiga
‘Hugo’ and ‘Kick-Ass’ star Chloe Moretz and Rupert Grint (‘Harry Potter’) are set to join Aaron Eckhart and Vera Farmiga on the cast of ‘The Drummer,’ the upcoming indie music biopic about Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson.
Directed by Randy Miller (‘Bottle Shock,’ ‘Nobel Son’) and penned by Jody Savin, the film follows six years “in Wilson’s life during which he and Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter Christine McVie (Farmiga) sparked a passionate and tumultuous relationship before his death in 1983.
Variety says that Moretz will be taking the role of Wilson’s daughter Jennifer, while Grint will play “Stan Shapiro, a mail room intern at William Morris, who befriended Wilson during the last few years of the musician’s life.”
‘The Drummer’ is scheduled to begin shooting in June.
