Aubrey Plaza has scored the lead female role in Hal Hartley’s long-planned dark comedy “Ned Rifle”. Filming begins April in New York City ahead of a Fall release.
Plaza will play Susan, the long lost flame of Henry Fool in the third and final chapter of Hartley’s trilogy following 1997’s “Henry Fool” and 2007’s “Fay Grim”.
Thomas Jay Ryan, Parker Posey, Liam Aiken and James Urbaniak will reprise their roles from the earlier films. Martin Donovan, Karen Sillas, Robert John Burke and William Sage also star.
