Spirit Award winner Dale Dickey (“Winter’s Bone”) and Emmy Award nominee Lili Taylor (“Six Feet Under”) have joined the cast of “Another Night” at Fox 2000.
Based on Nick Flynn’s memoir “Another Bullsh*t Night in Suck City”, the story revolves around the author’s experiences as a case worker for the homeless and his relationship with his father. As a teenager, Flynn (Paul Dano) had received letters from his estranged father (Robert De Niro), a delusional con man and self-proclaimed poet.
The memoir follows Flynn and his father, whose self-destructive behavior eventually drives him onto the streets and into the homeless shelter where Flynn works.
A just issued ‘start of production’ press release confirms earlier reports of Olivia Thirlby and Julianne Moore’s casting and states shooting has just begun on the East Coast.
Paul Weitz (“About a Boy,” “Little Fockers”) directs the film and produces alongside Chris Weitz and Michael Costigan.
