The coming biopic about the head of the FBI "J. Edgar" replenishes with the stars. It is known that in the main role is Leonardo DiCaprio. He was joined by Hammer Ermey, who played the twins in "Social network", and the legendary Judy Dench, Australian actor Damon Herriman, and if the director would be able to agree - Charlize Theron.
Eastwood personally confirmed participation of Dench and has hinted on Theron in one of his last interviews. It is likely that Charlize offered the role of Helen Gandy, employee of the Ministry of Justice, which became the personal secretary of J. Edgar and worked on him for 50 years.
What will be the role of Judy Dench it is yet unknown. But Ermey Hammer got the role of assistant and, as many claim, lover of Hoover - Clyde Tolson. For Hammer the work with Eastwood will be moving up the corporate ladder. Despite the fact that the writer was listed Dustin Lance Black, author of "Harvey Milk", do not expect the film Eastwood homoerotic scenes: Hoover's sexual orientation does not become the main theme of the movie.
Australian Damon Herriman will play Bruno Hauptmann, convicted for the kidnapping and murder of Lindbergh son. Modern historians and criminologists are increasingly believe Hauptmann guilty of "crime of the century", dubbed as the abduction of journalists.
Filming will begin in February next year.
