Josh & Rainn Ready To Rocker

Josh Gad will star opposite Rainn Wilson in the music-themed comedy “The Rocker” for Fox Atomic says Reuters.

The film tells the story of a failed, over-the-hill drummer (Wilson) who, 20 years after getting booted out of his now uber-famous former band, gets a second chance at fame with a new band.

Gad plays Wilson’s nephew and head of a high school rock band that Wilson ends up joining.

Ryan Jaffe wrote the original screenplay, Peter Cattaneo is directing, and shooting begins June 18th in Toronto.
