Strong is coming off playing Kendall Roy, the eldest son of Logan Roy, in the hit HBO drama Succession, as well as playing Roy Cohn alongside Sebastian Stan as a young Donald Trump in The Apprentice, which will premiere in Cannes.

Deliver Me From Nowhere explores the making of Nebraska, which is considered to be one the greatest albums of all time, per critics and music aficionados. The album followed the singer-songwriter’s huge The River album. Nebraska had the trademark blue-collar vibe of many other Springsteen albums, but this was also full of bleak and hopeless themes, accompanied by a sparse instruments.

The Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein (The Maze Runner trilogy) and Eric Robinson are producing the biopic about the New Jersey native, along with Cooper and Zanes. Scott Stuber is also producing, marking the first project for the former Netflix film head since he left the streamer in March.

Variety was first to report on Strong’s talks around joining Nowhere.
