Moore, Thirlby Slip Into “Suck City”

Julianne Moore and Olivia Thirlby (“Juno,” “The Wackness”) have joined the cast of “Another Night” at Fox 2000 reports The Film Stage.

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.

Paul Weitz (“About a Boy,” “Little Fockers”) will direct the film and produce alongside Chris Weitz and Michael Costigan.
