According to Variety, Dano has just signed on to the independently financed drama For Ellen. They describe it as the story of:
…a struggling indie rocker who, after nearly wrecking his car during an overnight long-distance drive, arrives in a small Midwestern town to deal with his impending divorce.”
So he’s saddling up to be an indie musician in an indie movie that I have to believe is shooting in Indianapolis.
Or, more likely, Saddlecreek hometown Omaha, Nebraska. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for a cameo by Jenny Lewis.
As you may know, Dano is well-versed for a role like this because he plays guitar and sings lead in the fantastic band Mook – that has a sort of stripped down pop feel (with a little jazz mixed in for good measure). They might as well score the film, right?
