Paul Dano is Gigantic

In an indie drama with Zooey Deschanel...

Having had his milkshake well and truly drunk by Daniel Day-Lewis (you knew we were going there and now we regret it, because it sounds dodgy) in There Will Be Blood, Paul Dano is sticking with indie-flavoured cinema for Gigantic.

He’s signed on to co-star and executive-produce the film, which already boasts Zooey Deschanel and has Matt Aselton making his directing debut. It sounds like the title will be slightly ironic as it’s actually a small romantic comedy that finds a mattress salesman falling for a woman he meets in his shop.

It kicks off filming next month and you can find the latest at The Hollywood Reporter.
