Lensing on the picture has only recently began but a host of set photos have already been appearing online over the last week or so providing our first glimpses at leading man Oscar Isaac, who reportedly plays a surrogate of folk singer Dave van Ronk, along with a bearded Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, who respectively play the married pair of Jim (a rival musician) and Jean.
Exact plot details are still under wraps but a recent profile of the production in the New York Times described the film as a "screwball comedy" which, if accurate, would be fascinating in conjunction with the film's musical elements. Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham, Jeanine Seralles and John Goodman also co-star in the film along with recent addition Stark Sands, a Broadway performer whose likely to add some singing chops as a forlorn solider on leave with talent for music. No word yet on what timeframe the film to be unveiled but we're guessing the fall festival circuit is a good bet. [via The Film Stage/Gothamist]
