The Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee is in talks to join the cast of 'Deliver Me From Nowhere', a movie about the making of the legendary singer-songwriter's album 'Nebraska'.

AceShowbiz - Paul Walter Hauser, known for his standout roles in "Richard Jewell" and "Black Bird", is in negotiations to add another intriguing character to his repertoire. Hauser is set to portray Mike Batlan, the long-time guitar tech for the iconic Bruce Springsteen in the upcoming biopic "Deliver Me From Nowhere". This role aligns with Hauser's recent momentum, following his Emmy-winning performance in "Black Bird".

"Deliver Me From Nowhere", directed by Scott Cooper and produced by Scott Stuber, is an adaptation of Warren Zanes' 2023 book "Deliver Me From Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska". The film will dive into the creation of Springsteen's 1982 album "Nebraska", a work lauded alongside Joni Mitchell's "Blue" for its emotional rawness and honesty.

The casting of Jeremy Allen White, star of "The Bear" and "Shameless", as Bruce Springsteen, has added significant buzz. Known for his Emmy-winning role as Carmen "Carey" Berzatto, White seems poised to capture the essence of Springsteen, bringing depth to the legendary rocker's on-screen portrayal.

Springsteen's manager Jon Landau will be played by "Succession" actor Jeremy Strong, further intensifying the film's star power. With 20th Century Studios financing and distributing the movie, expectations are high for a cinematic masterpiece.

The film sets out to capture a tumultuous period in Springsteen's career. Haunted by personal demons and the pressures of global superstardom, Springsteen retreated to his Colts Neck, NJ, apartment where Batlan built a recording studio. It was here that Springsteen crafted "Nebraska", playing all the instruments himself and producing an album that would reach Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

This project marks Springsteen's first biopic, despite his numerous concert films. Springsteen, who won an Oscar for "Streets of Philadelphia" in 1994, is actively involved in the movie alongside his manager, Jon Landau. This involvement ensures that the film will honor the authenticity and depth of Springsteen’s story.

As Hauser continues to build his career with roles in Marvel's "Fantastic Four" and a Chris Farley biopic, his participation in "Deliver Me From Nowhere" is an exciting addition to his impressive line-up. All eyes are on this upcoming film to provide a deep, heartfelt look into one of rock's most poetic souls.
