Biographical film "The Drummer" of the drummer for the band The Beach Boys Dennis Wilson can not be considered an expensive Hollywood project, which, however, does not interfere with this independent film to gain a solid cast. Aaron Eckhart plays the main character, Vera Farmiga - participant of the group Fleetwood Mac, Christine McVie. Also in the film will be occupied Chloe Grace Moretz and Rupert Grint.
Dennis Wilson was not only a drummer, but also the founder of The Beach Boys, which included brothers Brian and Carl Wilson and Mike Love's cousin. The group was formed at the suggestion of Dennis in August 1961 and immediately gained popularity due to the songs about surfing. Despite the fact that the image of the group was based on a California beach and surfing culture, from all the participants only Dennis is really surfed.
The Beach Boys influenced the formation of many musicians, including Elton John and Fleetwood Mac. As far as Dennis Wilson, his role in the group had not been a leading - sometimes Brian Wilson hired drummer to record albums. Dennis resigned to the situation, but eventually began to record solo projects. His only solo album Pacific Ocean Blue was released in 1977 and became a cult album a few years later, after the death of Dennis - he was drowned December 28, 1983, while in an intoxicated state.
Note that The Beach Boys drummer was familiar with Charles Manson, who in the late 1960s, was interested in music career. Manson and his commune "Family" often stayed in the house of drummer, who introduced Charles to the producer Terry Melcher. For some time he was interested in Manson's album, but ultimately refused. It was assumed that suppressed anger at the man who rejected his music, and resulted in the brutal murder of the wife of director Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate of her house guests, as Melcher once lived in it.
Star of movie "Kick Ass" and "Hugo" Chloe Moretz plays the daughter of Dennis Wilson, Jennifer. Jennifer Wilson, she is one of the producers of the film.
Rupert Grint, familiar audience for the franchise, "Harry Potter", won the role of Stan Shapiro, mail delivery man in the company of William Morris and a friend of Dennis in the last years of his life.
At the helm of "Drummer" is director Randall Miller, whose latest film "Bottle Shock" was released in 2008 (it starred Chris Pine and Alan Rickman). Filming will begin on June 15. The plot of "Drummer" will focus on the last six years of Dennis Wilson life.
