'Shameless' Actor Jeremy Allen White Joins Dakota Fanning in Indie Drama (Exclusive)
Zoe Kravitz, Caleb Landry Jones and Frank Dillane also join the cast of Gerardo Naranjo's English-language feature debut.
Shameless star Jeremy Allen White, along with Zoe Kravitz, Caleb Landry Jones and Frank Dillane, have joined the cast of writer-director Gerardo Naranjo’s untitled English-language coming-of-age drama.
The quartet join Dakota Fanning, who is starring in the pic, which Naranjo wrote and is directing. It follows a girl named Viena (Fanning), a roadie on a journey of self-discovery while on tour with a punk band in the 1980s. Production begins in Nevada later in February.
Hunter Gray and Alex Orlovsky of Verisimilitude and Chris Ramirez of Lola Pictures will produce. The film is a co-production of Verisimilitude and Lola Pictures, which is also financing.
CAA arranged the film's financing on behalf of the filmmakers. Domestic distribution rights will be repped by CAA and Preferred Content.
Naranjo is the acclaimed Mexican director of Miss Bala, a Spanish-language crime thriller. His first English-language work was directing the pilot episode of The Bridge.
White can currently be seen on season three of Shameless. His last feature was an appearance in the indie thriller We Gotta Get Out of This Place, which premiered last year at the Toronto Film Festival. He is repped by WME and Jackoway Tyerman.
Kravitz, repped by Paradigm and Untitled, will next be seen in Divergent, while Jones, repped by Resolution and Untitled, appeared as Banshee in X-Men: First Class and just wrapped Queen and Country, directed by John Boorman.
Dillane played the teenage Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and just wrapped Ron Howard’s Heart of the Sea. He is repped by WME and Michelle Braidman & Associates in the U.K.
