So, it's official, acclaimed indie filmmaker Ramin Bahrani has gone Hollywood. The Iranian-American director behind the trio of well-received, low-key efforts “Man Push Cart,” “Chop Shop” and “Goodbye Solo” has put together a pretty WTF cast for his next, still untitled effort. In case you forgot, back this spring the unlikely duo of Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron (really) came aboard. And now, some more random people have rounded out the cast.

Ramin Bahrani is pretty ace. The Iranian-American director broke through with 2005's terrific "Man Push Cart," and then followed it up swiftly with 2007's "Chop Shop" and 2008's "Goodbye Solo." There's not a bad film among them, all three humane, touching and cosmopolitan, and he's one of the most interesting young filmmakers around -- Roger Ebert even went as far as to call him the filmmaker of the decade in 2009. But strangely, we've not covered the director that much here at The Playlist: his last film hit theaters in 2008, and sadly new work, aside from the Werner Herzog-featuring short "Plastic Bag," hasn't really been forthcoming.
