English actress Agyness Deyn and GLOW star Gayle Rankin will share the screen with Elisabeth Moss in the punk-rock feature Her Smell.
Moss will star as Becky Something, the lead singer of a pioneering female rock band who struggles with the pressures of fame, her ex-husband and drugs as she attempts a comeback.
Deyn will play Marielle, Becky’s best friend, who eventually leaves the punk partying culture behind only to be reunited with her friend years later once they are able to makes amends. Rankin will play Ali, the sober, stabilizing drummer.
Alex Ross Perry, who has previously worked with Moss on two other features, wrote and will direct the pic. Matthew Pernicaro will produce under the Bow and Arrow banner, which was behind the Sundance standout Skate Kitchen.
Deyn, who is repped by UTA and the U.K.’s Independent, can currently be seen leading the Hulu series Hard Sun. She also stars opposite Sam Worthington and Taylor Schilling in the Netflix thriller The Titan, and will next be seen in the Screen Gems drama Patient Zero.
Rankin is best known for playing Sheila the She-Wolf on Netflix’s lady wrestling series GLOW. Her other credits include The Greatest Showman and The Meyerowitz Stories. Rankin is repped by UTA and Authentic.
