Andrew Garfield is set to star in “Mainstream,” director Gia Coppola’s followup to her 2013 indie drama “Palo Alto,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
The “Breathe” and “Silence” actor will co-star opposite Maya Hawke (“Stranger Things”), Jason Schwartzman (“Rushmore”) and Nat Wolff (“Paper Towns”). Filming is expected to begin by the end of the year.
“Mainstream,” which Coppola co-wrote with Tom Stuart, is an eccentric, modern romantic drama about a love-triangle set in an internet age.
CAA Media Finance is handling domestic sales on “Mainstream,” with Wild Bunch handling foreign sales as they introduce the film at the American Film Market.
Automatik’s Fred Berger (“La La Land”) is producing. Robert Schwartzman, Holly Wiersma, and American Zoetrope will serve as executive producers on the film.
Coppola’s first film “Palo Alto” was based on a book by James Franco and starred Franco alongside Emma Roberts and Jack Kilmer. This is just the second feature film for Coppola, who is a niece to directors Sofia Coppola and Roman Coppola.
Garfield last starred in this year’s “Under the Silver Lake” from director David Robert Mitchell.
Coppola is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment, and Garfield is repped by CAA and Gordon & French.
Deadline first reported this.
