The Bikeriders: Jeff Nichols is back with an intriguing film and a terrific cast

Jeff Nicholsthe director behind Midnight Special, come back with The Bikeridersa new project with a (very) well-stocked cast.

Subscriber absent from film sets since his loving in 2016, Jeff Nichols has since kindly made himself desired in Hollywood. Assigned to direct the franchise’s third installment Without a sound by John Krasinski himself (who had directed the first two), the filmmaker finally preferred to abandon the footage for the benefit of another company. Untitled, but produced by Paramount, the project remains nebulous to this day; we only know that it will be a science-fiction intrigue, and that it will undoubtedly push back the serial remake of Alien Nationpartly handled by Jeff Nichols for Disney.

However, it would seem that in the meantime, the filmmaker has another footage under the elbow. Inspired by the life of photographer Danny Lyon and his novel The Bikeridersthe homonymous film would be, according to Deadline, in the pipes of the New Regency company since last spring. Scenario by Jeff Nichols obliges, several sympathetic names would have subsequently hurried to the doors in order to potentially join the adventure, and in view of the first cast revealed by variety, the film should actually benefit from a very nice audience of actors.

Sadly underrated Midnight Special

Jodie Comerdazzling in literally everything she does (but if I had to name just one project, it would of course be Killing Eve), Tom Hardywhich needs no introduction (especially since the poor diptych Venom) and Austin Butlera new Hollywood darling since her inhabited performance in earthy Elvis, will be on display at The Bikeriders.

And if it has not been announced at the casting for the moment, it is a safe bet that Michael Shannonwho has systematically participated in each of Nichols’ films, is also part of it. So beautiful people! At present, the roles that the actors will take on respectively are of course still unknown.

The Bikeriders will tell, over ten years, the rise of a motorcycle gang in the 1960s Midwest. Narrated from the perspectives of the various members of the group, the plot of the film will relate how, over the years, it has evolved from a refuge for a small group of local misfits to a much more dangerous gang, subsequently threatening the ways of life. original participants.

All in all intriguing premises for the future footage. We also suspect that the artistic touch of Jeff Nichols and this five-star cast will give rise to a work as fascinating as the rest of the filmmaker’s filmography. Now all we have to do is wait patiently to find out more. Perhaps the time between now and then to discover, or rediscover, the fascinating Mud – On the banks of the Mississippiand Take Shelter.
