Deadline is exclusively reporting that Cooper Hoffman is the latest name to join the cast for Cooper Raiff’s next film The Trashers.
Based on a true-story, the film will chart the rise and fall of Jimmy Galante, a Connecticut trash magnate and associate of the Genovese crime family. In 2004, Galante bought the city’s minor-league hockey team and assigned his teenage son, A.J, to run it. The team gained notoriety for their rough and violent style of play, but also developed a wide fan base as they started to win more and more games. The team’s success and fame all came to an abrupt end with Galante’s arrest on seventy-two criminal charges.
Cooper Hoffman (who made his big screen debut in Licorice Pizza) will be playing the role of Jimmy Galante’s son.
Raiff will direct from a script written by Adam R. Perlman, with current revisions by Raiff. 30West is financing the film. Tom McNulty (MC2 Entertainment) and Andrew Morrison (Yellow Bear Films) will serve as producers on the project, with Micah Green, Dan Steinman and Dan Friedkin of 30West executive producing alongside Jon Wetheim and Adam R. Perlman. AJ Galante, on whose life the story is based on, will serve as associate produce.
Cooper Hoffman will star alongside David Harbour, with production set to commence this Autumn.
