Exciting news for fans of both The Boss and The Bear: at the end of March, Deadline reported that Jeremy Allen White was the top choice to play Bruce Springsteen in an upcoming biopic loosely titled, Deliver Me From Nowhere, directed by Scott Cooper. The film is set to follow the work the New Jersey icon put into his 1982 album, Nebraska, and is based on a nonfiction book about the creation of Springsteen’s solo album. Now, it has been confirmed that White will be playing The Boss in the upcoming film. Here’s the background of the movie and the details known right now.

Updates as of April 8th

Emmy-winning actor Jeremy Allen White will officially play The Boss in an upcoming biopic based on the creation of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska. Per Deadline, the The Bear star will start filming the biopic, Deliver Me From Nowhere, this fall in New Jersey. 20th Century Studios closed a deal to finance the film over the weekend, so A24 will no longer produce the movie. The exact start date and filming locations are still unknown — but we will keep you updated as more details come out surrounding the film.

Yes, Chef

The star of the massively successful FX Show, The Bear, is still shooting season four in Chicago as of March 2024. For those who haven’t watched the show yet or are waiting to binge all episodes when it’s released on Hulu, the show follows a young chef, Carmy Berzatto, running a family restaurant in Chicago after a tragic family death.

A Reason To Believe

The first harmonica notes on the title track, Nebraska, are rough and emotional. The lyrics weaving through each song throughout the album tell dark stories of ordinary blue-collar workers, the challenges they face, and other stories of criminals and outsiders. It followed the smashing success of the 1980 album, The River. Springsteen would later reveal the collection of dark, solemn songs reflected his struggles with depression and mental health, according to an interview with CBS Sunday Morning

Springsteen recorded 15 songs, including Johnny 99, Reason to Believe, and Atlantic City, on cassette tape when he was 32 years old in his bedroom in Colts Neck, New Jersey, intending to re-record them later with the rest of his E Street Band. He eventually decided to release 10 songs as they were, gritty and uncut, without the accompaniment of his band. Rolling Stone lists Nebraska at #150 on its list of 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time and many music lovers call it Bruce’s “masterpiece.”

The movie is reportedly an adaptation of Deliver Me from Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska, a book by Warren Zanes. The book follows the creation of the heart-wrenching album, the story behind each song, and how it impacted the rest of Springsteen’s career. It includes interviews with members of the E Street Band, other musicians who drew inspiration from the album, and, of course, a chat with The Boss himself.

Keeping The Cameras Rolling

A Bruce biopic isn’t the only musically-inclined movie shooting in New Jersey. In March of 2024, crews for a movie about Bob Dylan were spotted in Jersey City. Timothée Chalamet stars as the singer-songwriter in A Complete Unknown, a biographical musical drama film directed by James Mangold. The story follows Dylan’s beginnings in the New York folk scene during the 1960s after he moved from Minnesota. The release date for the film is still unknown.

According to the Deadline report, Springsteen and his manager are heavily involved in the making of the biopic about Nebraska.
