Actress Stella Schnabel will join Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster in Oren Moverman's upcoming cop drama "Rampart," TheWrap has learned.
Set against the backdrop of the scandal within the L.A.P.D. Rampart Division in the late 1990s, the film presents a fictional account of a veteran police officer (Harrelson) caught up in the wrongdoing, and follows his search for redemption.
The project reunites "The Messenger" director Moverman with his two leading men from that Oscar-nominated drama.
Schnabel will play an L.A.P.D. officer in "Rampart," which co-stars Ice Cube, Sigourney Weaver, Steve Buscemi, Robin Wright, Cynthia Nixon and Anne Heche.
Schnabel next stars as a troubled urban misfit in Ry Russo-Young's "You Won't Miss Me," which will finally be released on Dec. 10 after screening to critical acclaim at the 2009 Sundance and SXSW film festivals, and winning last year's Gotham Independent Film Award for "Best Film Not Playing At A Theater Near You." The movie co-stars Greta Gerwig, Barlow Jacobs and Aaron Katz, and TheWrap can exclusively reveal the poster below.
Russo-Young will next direct "Nobody Walks," a project she co-wrote with "Tiny Furniture" director Lena Dunham. The filmmakers are planning to start production in spring 2011.
Schnabel has previously appeared in "Basquiat," "Before Night Falls" and "Miral," all of which were directed by her father, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Julian Schnabel.
The younger Schnabel is represented by Gersh.
