John Hawkes Peter Bogdanovich

Oscar nominated actor John Hawkes  and certified legend Peter Bogdanovich are set to the lead the ensemble of the indie drama "Too Late." The "Martha Marcy May Marlene" star will play the part of a private investigator who is hired to find a missing woman with whom he has a troubled relationship.

Dennis Hauck, director of festival-acclaimed short "Sunday Punch," will be making his feature debut with the project, which he also wrote, and will be challenging himself with a non-linear narrative with which to spin the tale. Natalie Zea ("Justified"), Dichen Lachman ("Dollhouse") and Rider Strong ("Cabin Fever") round out the cast.

"Too Late" will start production in late May in Los Angeles, after which Hawkes will shoot "Switch," the prequel to Quentin Tarantino’s "Jackie Brown," also based on a novel by Elmore Leonard. [THR]
