Yet another new project for very busy Toni Collette, according to Variety. Park Pictures, Burn Later Productions, and Houston King Productions announced on Thursday that Ted Danson, Sasha Lane, Blythe Danner, and Toni Collette are joining the previously announced Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons in Brett Haley’s upcoming musical drama “Hearts Beat Loud”. Clemons will play the daughter of Offerman’s character as they form a songwriting team during the summer before she leaves for college. “Hearts Beat Loud” will include four original songs and a score by Keegan DeWitt. Offerman and Clemons will both sing in the film. The drama will shoot in New York City in August. “Hearts Beat Loud’ is about the connective power of music and the unexpected friendship that blossoms between a father and daughter as they are brought closer together through their songs, at a pivotal point in their lives when they are both about to make important decisions about their future,” Haley said. “I wrote the film with Nick Offerman in mind after my experience working with him on ‘The Hero.’ He is one of my favorite actors and I’m very excited to be putting him at the center of this film.”
