David Chase Recruits Steven Van Zandt and Unknown Actors for His Feature-Film Debut

It still doesn't have a name, but a few new details about David Chase's film debut — currently being described as a “music-driven coming of age story set in 1960’s suburbia" — have come out. According to a press release from Paramount, Steven Van Zandt will serve as executive producer for the movie, and produce and supervise its music. And, perhaps more interesting, the three lead roles have gone to largely unknown actors: John Magaro (My Soul to Take), Jack Huston (Twilight: Eclipse), and Will Brill, in his first feature-film role. Okay, now let's help David come up with a title! The only thing we can think of is Hey, Let's Metaphorically Escape the Suburbs by Dancing to This Rock n' Roll Music.
