Close set to take a Low Down role
Glenn Close has joined indie drama Low Down, according to reports.
The Stepford Wives star is one of the newest additions to the cast of the 1960s-set film, said The Hollywood Reporter. Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and Taryn Manning have also signed up.
John Hawkes, who starred in The Sessions, was already on board to play a jazz musician who is struggling with addiction, with Elle Fanning as his daughter.
Singer-actress Taryn is tipped to play a failed actress with a young daughter and addiction issues of her own, while the roles of Glenn and Flea are being kept under wraps.
Low Down will be the directorial debut of Jeff Preiss, with production already under way in Los Angeles.
Glenn - who won huge acclaim and many awards for her portrayal of ruthless litigator Patty Hewes in TV series Damages - has three upcoming big-screen outings with drama The Grace That Keeps This World, music-driven drama Always On My Mind and romantic comedy 5 To 7.
