[inlink id="jeremy-allen-white-bruce-springsteen" text="As previously reported"], the film is about the making of Springsteen's 1982 album Nebraska. This film will be an adaptation of the 2023 book Deliver Me From Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska by Warren Zanes. White, of course, is best known for his role as Carmy Berzatto in the FX series The Bear. The role has netted him a Golden Globe, SAG Award, and an Emmy Award this past awards season.

Released in 2019 was [inlink id="bruce-springsteen-blinded-by-the-light-movie" text="Blinded By The Light"]. The film tells the story of Javed, a British teen of Pakistani descent, growing up in England in 1987 amidst racial and economic turmoil. Javed is passionate about poetry and then his passion is turned upside down when a classmate introduces him to the music of The Boss.   Blinded By The Light was based on Sarfraz Manzoor's memoir Greetings from Bury Park and comes from writer/director/producer Gurinder Chadha, best known for 2002's Bend It Like Beckham. Manzoor told us in an [inlink id="blinded-by-the-light-writer-sarfraz-manzoor-talks-about-film-adaptation-of-his-memoir-springsteens-blessing" text="August 2019 interview"] that Springsteen not only gave his blessing in the making of the film, but he let the small-budget film use his music in the film for free. "He's given 19 songs...He's given the most valuable thing he has with his back catalog to a story about a Pakistani teenager in England in the 1980s," said Manzoor. "Think about how much he could sell his music for; he gave it to us for nothing. It's a British Independent film. We didn't have a studio backing us. It was just a small-budget film, and he basically said you can have the entire back catalog."   [select-listicle listicle_id="383586" syndication_name="scott-weiland-9-other-musicians-with-biopics-in-the-works" description="no"]
