Chloe Moretz (“Hugo”) and Rupert Grint (“Harry Potter”) have joined “The Drummer,” Randall Miller’s indie biopic of the last six years in the life of Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Moretz is in final negotiations to play Wilson’s daughter Jennifer while Grint will play Stan Shapiro, a mail room intern at William Morris who befriended Wilson during the last years of the musician’s life.
Aaron Eckhart is already signed to play Wilson while Vera Farmiga is set as Fleetwood Mac singer-songwriter Christine McVie.
The real Jennifer Wilson is co-producing the film with her half-brother Carl and writer Jody Savin. Shooting kicks off June 15th.
