Bruce Springsteen Biopic ‘Deliver Me From Nowhere’ Cast Grows with Addition of Paul Walter Hauser

The upcoming Bruce Springsteen movie ‘Deliver Me From Nowhere’ is expanding its ensemble cast, with sources revealing that Paul Walter Hauser is in talks to join the film. Although not officially confirmed, reports indicate that Hauser is in negotiations to portray longtime guitar tech Mike Batlan in the 20th Century Studios production.

Jeremy Allen White has already been cast as Springsteen, with Scott Cooper set to direct the biopic chronicling the creation of the iconic album ‘Nebraska’.

The studio has refrained from making any comments regarding the casting news.

In a previous announcement, 20th Century Studios secured financing and distribution rights for the film, which delves into the journey of the legendary musician as he navigates personal struggles and the pressures of fame while crafting the seminal album ‘Nebraska’ in 1982.

Producer Scott Stuber, known for his tenure at Netflix Film, is leading the project alongside Gotham Group’s Ellen Goldsmith-Vein and Eric Robinson.

Mike Batlan played a pivotal role in Springsteen’s early career, constructing a recording studio in the musician’s New Jersey apartment before becoming a key member of his tour crew in the 1970s and 80s.

Following his Emmy-winning performance in ‘Black Bird’, Hauser has been actively building his future projects, including portraying Chris Farley in ‘The Chris Farley Show’ biopic and securing a mystery role in Marvel Studios’ ‘Fantastic Four’. His representation includes CAA, Artists First, and Schreck Rose Dapello.
