Chloe Moretz and Rupert Grint to star together in The Drummer

Chloe Moretz and Harry Potter's Rupert Grint are joining helmer Randall Miller's "The Drummer," an indie music biopic about Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson, according to Variety.

Moretz is in final negotiations to play Wilson's daughter Jennifer, who is co-producing the film, along with her half-brother Carl. Grint will play Stan Shapiro, a mail room intern at William Morris, who befriended Wilson during the last few years of the musician's life.

The film which will centre on the last six years of Wilson's life before his death in 1983, is set to begin production in mid June, and also stars Vera Fermiga as Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie, and Aaron Eckhart as Wilson.

Having recently starred seen in Martin Scorsese’s acclaimed 3D fantasy epic Hugo, Chloe will next be seen in Tim Burton’s adaptation of Dark Shadows set for release this coming May.

The Drummer will mark Grint’s first major deal since Harry Potter ended last year. He has previously stuck to small British indie films so far, including Cherrybomb and Wild Target.
