“Vampire Academy” star Zoey Deutch has been cast as the female lead (Mae) opposite Tyson Ritter, Wyatt Russell and William Hurt in “Midnight Rider,” produced by Unclaimed Freight Productions.
Deutch will play a rock ‘n roll groupie who becomes the love interest of Gregg Allman in the early years of the Allman Brothers Band. Mae, (played by Deutch) is a small town girl in Macon, Georgia looking to hitch herself to the band and get out of town.
“Zoey’s freshness and intensity blows me away. She is both young and wise. I can’t wait to work with her,” said Miller, who is both the director and co-writer of the script.
Production is scheduled to begin next month in Savannah, Georgia at Meddin Studios.
Deutch is represented by Innovative Artists and Gilbertson Entertainment.
