ZOEY DEUTCH TO PLAY ALLMAN'S GROUPIE LOVER IN BIOPIC

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - Beautiful Creatures star Zoey Deutch has landed the female lead in the upcoming Allman Brothers biopic, Midnight Rider.

The young star will play a rock groupie called Mae, who became Greg Allman's love interest as his band was starting out.

She joins Tyson Ritter, Wyatt Russell and William Hurt in the Randall Miller movie.

Ritter and Hurt will both play Greg Allman in the film, while Goldie Hawn

and Kurt Russell's son Wyatt will portray his brother Duane.

Director Miller tells WENN he's thrilled with the latest casting news: "Zoey's freshness and intensity blows me away. She is both young and wise. I can't wait to work with her."

Midnight Rider will be an adaptation of Gregg Allman's bestselling biography My Cross To Bear.
