There are a lot of people who love Nick Offerman from Parks & Recreation, but he’s never gotten to be the lead in a movie. Now though he’s taking centre stage and showing off his musical skills at the same time, as he’s set to headline Hearts Beat Loud.
THR reports he’ll star alongside Ted Danson, Sasha Lane, Blythe Danner, Kiersey Clemons and Toni Collette in the movie, with Brett Haley directing. It should start shooting in New York in August.
The movie ‘centers on a father (Offerman) and daughter (Clemons) who form an unlikely songwriting duo in the last summer before she leaves for college. Hearts Beat Loud will feature four original songs and a score by award-winning composer-songwriter Keegan DeWitt.’
We’re also being promised that both Offerman and Clemons will sing in the movie.
Haley comments, “I wrote the film with Nick Offerman in mind after my experience working with him on The Hero. He is one of my favorite actors, and I’m very excited to be putting him at the center of this film.”
