Dane DeHaan Heads For Ziggy

When he’s not taking small roles in big blockbusters like The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Dane DeHaan spends most of his time in quirkier fare such as this new drama. He’s locked for the lead in musical Ziggy alongside Rooney Mara{ =nofollow}.

Diesel Schwarze, a former protégé of Baz Luhrmann who worked for the Aussie director on Moulin Rouge and his Broadway version of La Boheme, will call the shots for Ziggy. It follows the rise and fall of a hunchback escape artist who arrives in New York and falls for the fiancée (Mara) of a powerful media mogul. Yeah, that old story…

With Electric City providing production support, Schwarze – who honed his skills making ads before finally making the jump to films – will tear a leaf from his old mentor’s book and work with music producer Alex Da Kid to craft a contemporary soundtrack despite the movie’s period trappings. So can we expect Kanye down the Great White Way?

At the very least, it looks like we’ll be hearing DeHaan and Mara belting tunes on screen in the near future, though there’s no word on a start date yet.
