Jeremy Allen White To Play Bruce Springsteen In Film Chronicling Making Of ‘Nebraska’

Jeremy Allen White is set to play Bruce Springsteen in a new movie titled Deliver Me From Nowhere, which chronicles the making of the Boss’ classic album, Nebraska.

The movie is based on the book “Deliver Me From Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska” by Warren Zanes. 20th Century Studios and Disney will produce and distribute the movie. Scott Cooper is writing and directing the film.

The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Eric Robinson, Cooper, Zanes and Scott Stuber are producers. Production on the film is expected to begin this fall.

“It is a once-in-a-lifetime honor to be collaborating with Bruce Springsteen, an inspiring and incomparable artist who represents so much to so many,” David Greenbaum, president of Disney Live Action and 20th Century Studios, said in a statement. “The deep authenticity of his story is in great hands with my friend Scott Cooper, whom I am thrilled to be collaborating with once again.”

“Warren Zanes’ ‘Deliver Me From Nowhere’ is one of the best books ever written about Bruce Springsteen and his music,” Springsteen’s longtime manager and sometime producer Jon Landau added. “Bruce and I are thrilled that Scott Cooper has chosen to write and direct the film based on that book – we think he’s the perfect filmmaker for the job. Scott, with Producers Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson at The Gotham Group, and Scott Stuber are bringing together a superb team to ensure that this project has the vision and soul that have been the hallmark of Bruce’s 55-year career. We’re thrilled to have the wholehearted commitment and support of the entire team at 20th and Disney.”
