Dekker Tastes Some “Cinema Verite”

Thomas Dekker (“Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “A Nightmare on Elm Street”) has joined the cast of “Cinema Verite” for HBO Films reports Reuters.

The film takes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the groundbreaking 1973 PBS documentary “An American Family”, considered amongst the very first productions to document a real-life family dealing with such problems as divorce and sexual identity.

Tim Robbins and Diane Lane star as the parents Bill and Pat Loud while Dekker will portray their son Lance who came out as a gay man and fell under much scrutiny. James Gandolfini will portray documentary producer Craig Gilbert.

Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini are directing and shooting kicks off this summer in Los Angeles.
