Logan Marshall Green has been tapped to play Tennessee Williams in Full Moon Films’ Lonely Hunter, the feature based on the life of Southern gothic novelist Carson McCullers. Playwright Williams was the best friend and longtime confidante of McCullers, who is being played by Jena Malone in the biopic to be directed by Deborah Kampmeier and co-written by Kampmeier and Sarah Shulman. Troy Johanson is producing with Blair Breard, and Fork Films’ Abigail Disney will exec produce. The film is set to go before cameras this year, and casting is ongoing for McCullers’ other pals like Truman Capote and Gypsy Rose Lee. Marshall Green, whose credits include Across The Universe and Brooklyn’s Finest, next appears in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. He is repped by Gersh and 3 Arts.
