Emmy-winning “The Bear” star Jeremy Allen White is reportedly in talks for the starring role in a biopic of legendary American musician Bruce Springsteen.

Titled “Deliver Me From Nowhere,” the project is based on Warren Zanes’ book of the same name and is set to focus on the making of Springsteen’s sixth album “Nebraska” in 1982.

Though it lacks his most famous tracks like “Born in the U.S.A.,” “Glory Days,” or “Hungry Heart,” it remains one of the most highly regarded albums in his catalogue with a solemn and thoughtful tone and challenging subject matter.

Scott Cooper is adapting the script with plans to direct the film which also has distributor A24 circling the project. Eric Robinson and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein are producing.

Springsteen, now 74, remains a music icon famed for his energetic live performances and celebrating working class American life. He has sold more than 71 million albums in the U.S. and over 140 million worldwide.

White most recently starred in “The Iron Claw” and is currently filming back-to-back third and fourth seasons of “The Bear”.
