Logan Marshall Green Joins Lonely Hunter

He’ll be seen next month exploring a distant planet on the hunt for alien life in Prometheus, but Logan Marshall Green will be keeping his feet strictly on the ground for one of his next films. He’s now locked in the role of Tennessee Williams in Lonely Hunter.

Deborah Kampmeier is directing the movie, which charts the life and storied friendships of Southern gothic novelist Carson McCullers (Jena Malone). The people she knew included iconic people such as Williams, Truman Capote and Gypsy Rose Lee.

Williams, who found fame with such plays as Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, A Streetcar Named Desire and The Rose Tattoo, was McCullers’ best friend and confidante. Kampmeier has co-written the script with Sarah Schulman and is busy tracking down actors to play the other writing/performing legends. She’s looking to get the cameras cranking this year.

Green was last seen in horror thriller Devil and will, as mentioned, be part of the cast of Prometheus when it hits on June 1. He’s currently at work on Black Dog, Red Dog alongside James Franco and Olivia Wilde.
