Michael C. Hall, Ben Foster, Kyra Sedgwick and Jennifer Jason Leigh have joined the cast of Kill Your Darlings.
The quartet join an ensemble cast already boasting Daniel Radcliffe, Elizabeth Olsen, Dane DeHaan and Jack Huston. John Krokidas wrote the script with Austin Bunn and will make his feature directorial debut.
The Killer Films and Benaroya Pictures’ thriller is scheduled to begin shooting in March in New York at Columbia University. Killer Films’ Christine Vachon is producing with Michael Benaroya of Benaroya Pictures and Rose Ganguzza of Rose Pictures. Killer’s Pamela Koffer is executive producer.
The script details the previously untold story of murder that brought together a young Allen Ginsberg (Radcliffe), Jack Kerouac (Huston) and William Burroughs (Foster) at Columbia in 1944, providing the spark that would lead to the Beat Revolution.
