Quite the ensemble cast has been put together for the rocker drama Imagine. THR reports that Julianne Moore, and Jeremy Renner have joined Al Pacino star in the pic, which will mark the directorial debut of Crazy, Stupid, Love. scribe Dan Fogelman. The story centers on an aging 1970s rocker (Pacino) who discovers an undelivered letter written to him when he has 19 by John Lennon that spurs him to straighten his life out and connect with the son (Renner) he’s never known. Moore will play the owner of a small New Jersey hotel where the rocker takes up residence.
It’s certainly a different kind of role for Pacino, but with talent like Moore and Renner aboard one assumes the story isn’t too schmaltzy. Steve Carell was previously attached to the Renner role when the project was set up at Warner Bros., but the pic will now be shopped to foreign buyers at the upcoming American Film Market. A Spring 2013 productions start date is planned.
