Daltry Calhoun: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miramax Films is moving forward with the production of Daltry Calhoun, gearing up for a September 25th start date with Johnny Knoxville in final negotiations to topline.
Juliette Lewis, Elizabeth Banks, David Koechner and Kick Gurry also are on board to star in the project, sources confirmed. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Katrina Holden Bronson. Miramax and Quentin Tarantino's L. Driver Prods. are co-producing.
The project brings Knoxville and Tarantino back to their roots: Both are originally from Knoxville, Tenn., the setting for Daltry Calhoun. The project, penned by Bronson, is described as a dark comedy about a father (Knoxville) struggling to keep his once lucrative Tennessee golfing empire intact when his estranged 14-year-old daughter -- a gifted musician -- is unexpectedly left in his care.
