Paul Dano will star in the upcoming Brian Wilson biopic LOVE & MERCY, previously titled Heroes and Villains. Dano will play a young Brian Wilson. Oren Moverman is the writer responsible for the most current draft of the script.
Story centers on famed Beach Boys band member Brian Wilson, and the special relationship he has with his therapist, Dr. Eugene Landy — the man responsible for reviving Wilson’s career in the 70″²s, and destroying it in the 80″²s.
Producing will be Bill Pohlad (also directing) and Claire Rudnick Polstein.
Dano last played the poor doomed ‘Seth’ in “Looper” and will next be in Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave”.
He is repped by WME.
