Beals for The Rocking Horsemen

Jennifer Beals has joined coming-of-age film The Rocking Horsemen.

The Hollywood Reporter said that the US actress - best known for her role as Alexandra "Alex" Owens in 1983 film Flashdance - will join Sean Astin, Eric Stoltz and Billy Zane in the movie.

Matthew Modine, whose acting credits include Full Metal Jacket and The Dark Knight Rises, is directing the film.

The actor-director also wrote the story, which centres around five teenage boys in the 1960s and their attempt to form a rock band.

Jennifer, also known for TV series The L Word, recently began filming her role as Dr Kathryn Russo in TV movie Proof, about a surgeon searching for proof of life after death.

She is also signed up to the film Manhattan Nocturne alongside Adrien Brody and Yvonne Strahovski.
