Harry Potter star Daniel will play Allen Ginsberg in the flick, which will focus on a 1944 murder at Columbia University, which helped spawn the Beat Generation.
Dane Dehaan has also joined the cast of the film, which is expected to start shooting in March.
Elizabeth, who is the younger sister of famous twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, has several weighty projects in the pipeline. She will be seen in upcoming thriller Red Lights and it has been reported that she will be starring in period drama Therese Raquin alongside Glenn Close.
