Earlier, we reported that filmmaker Richard Linklater is developing his next project titled Blue Moon. The latest update is that Ethan Hawke, Andrew Scott, Margaret Qualley and Bobby Cannavale are set to star in lead roles in the upcoming film.

Blue Moon, which is expected to go on floors in Dublin, Ireland this Summer, marks Hawke's ninth collaboration with Linklater. The film will feature the story of popular American songwriters Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. It is expected to explore the duo's journey and their parting ways. The script written by Robert Kaplow will explore the dynamics between the two musicians. Kaplow has previously worked with Linklater on Me and Orson Welles.

The film gets its title from the songwriting duo's 1934 ballad. Blue Moon is also expected to throw light on a struggling Hart who scrambles to find success when his collaborator Rodgers is on the rise. It is also expected to focus on Hart's battle with alcohol and mental health. They last collaborated on A Connecticut Yankee in 1943. Other popular productions of them include Pal Joey, Babes in Arms, and Mississippi.

Coming up Ethan Hawke has Tonight at Noon which is currently in post-production. Andrew Scott, last seen in Ripley has Back in Action and Wake Up Dead Man: A Knives Out Mystery in various stages of production. Margaret Qualley, known for Maid, has Honey Don't! and Hutington in the pipeline. Lastly, Bobby Cannavale will be seen in MaXXXine, Unstoppable and Trap House next.
