Alden Ehrenreich is one of those young actors where it feels like they should have broken out bigger, but unfortunately the likes of Beautiful Creatures and Twixt haven’t quite done it for him. Now he’s joining a very starry ensemble, as Variety reports that he’s up for the Coen Brothers’ Hail Caesar.
The likes of George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill are already onboard for the movie, which is about a 1950s Hollywood fixer called Eddie Mannix, who works for the movie studios to help their major stars from avoiding scandals and to keep their dirty laundry under cover.
As with many of the other actors involved, there’s little info on exactly who Ehrenreich will play. Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are directing from their own original script, with filming expected to begin this autumn.
