College Republicans

Dan is rumoured to be attached to the role of Lee Atwater in College Republicans, alongside Kill Your Darlings co-star Dane DeHaan, and the film’s director John Krokidas, from a Black List script by Wes Jones. As of yet, this project is unconfirmed, and as such, should be treated as a rumour.

College Republicans, set in 1973 and based on true events, would see Dan play Lee Atwater, campaign manager for Karl Rove, who is running for the position of national College Republican Chairman. Atwater and Rove take a road trip to rally support for Rove’s candidacy. The film is being described as a buddy movie, and is tentatively set to begin filming in November 2014.
