Mud director Jeff Nichols’ new movie has lined up a star-studded cast. Per Deadline (opens in new tab), his new movie The Bikeriders will star Jodie Comer, Austin Butler and Tom Hardy.
The movie is thought to be an original story inspired by Danny Lyon’s book of the same name. First published in 1968, The Bikeriders features photographs and stories from the members of the Chicago Outlaws Motorcycle Club.
Lyon was part of the club himself and shares personal and gritty anecdotes from its members. Nicols’ adaptation will be taking inspiration from this and setting his version in a fictional Midwestern town in the 1960s.
Just like the book, The Bikeriders movie will focus on the members of a motorcycle club. It will take place over a decade as the club evolves from a community hub to something much darker.Read more on gamesradar.com
