Mary Steenburgen always adds value to a cast, and she’ll hopefully be doing that in Song One, as Deadline reports that she’s in talks to join the music-centred drama Song One, for writer-director Kate Barker-Froyland.
Anne Hathaway is already on-board to play a woman who returns home when her brother is injured and starts up a relationship with his favourite musician, James Forrester (played by Lotus Eaters star Johnny Flynn), while also coping with her family issues. Steenburgen is set to be Hathaway’s mother.
The current plan is to shoot Song One this summer, so expect it in cinemas sometime next year. Steenburgen will next be seen in Last Vegas, alongside Robert De Niro and Michael Douglas.
