Jeremy Allen White, acclaimed for his role in FX’s The Bear, is reportedly in discussions to step into the iconic shoes of Bruce Springsteen for an upcoming film centered on the creation of the legendary musician’s 1982 album, Nebraska. The movie, tentatively titled Deliver Me From Nowhere, is set to be helmed by Scott Cooper and produced by Eric Robinson and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein of the Gotham Group, with A24 potentially joining the project, according to reports from Deadline.

Based on Warren Zanes’ book, Deliver Me From Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska, the film will delve into the making of Springsteen’s seminal album, known for its raw and introspective tracks, recorded in Springsteen’s bedroom on a four-track cassette a few years before he and the E Street Band would release “Born in the U.S.A.”

White’s potential casting as Springsteen comes on the heels of his award-winning performance in The Bear and his role in A24’s The Iron Claw. The actor, who has garnered accolades including an Emmy, Golden Globe and SAG Award, is currently immersed in filming for the upcoming seasons of The Bear in Chicago.
