'American Honey' Breakout Sasha Lane to Star in 'Shoplifters of the World' (Exclusive) - The Hollywood Reporter
American Honey breakout Sasha Lane has lined up her next project.
Lane, who was plucked from obscurity to star in the Cannes Film Festival darling opposite Shia LaBeouf, will head up the cast of Shoplifters of the World.
Written and directed by music documentarian Stephen Kijak, Shoplifters chronicles a fateful day in 1987, when Morrissey announced that The Smiths were officially no longer a band. Fueled by his own sadness and his love for a girl, a young boy brings a gun to a radio station and demands the DJ play The Smiths for the rest of the night.
Nick Krause (The Descendants), Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan), Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood) and Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike) also are on board to co-star. Manganiello, who will play the DJ, is producing as well alongside Nick Manganiello and Laura Rister (Lawless).
Production is scheduled to begin in winter.
