Just one day after signing on to Ridley Scott's The Martian, Sebastian Stan has landed a role in Ricki and the Flash opposite Meryl Streep.
We first reported on this project in April, when Meryl Streep signed on to play a woman chasing her dreams of being a rock star, which resulted in losing her family. Now this grocery store clerk gets one final shot at fulfilling her rock and roll destiny. Sebastian Stan is playing the woman's estranged son, joining a cast that also includes Kevin Kline and Rick Springfield.
Jonathan Demme (Rachel Getting Married) is directing from a screenplay by Diablo Cody (Young Adult), with Marc Platt and Mason Novick producing. It isn't known when production may begin.
Sebastian Stan most recently starred in Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier as Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier, a role he will reprise in Captain America 3.
