Melanie Lynskey has also joined the cast in a supporting role.
“Folk Hero” is written and directed by Jeff Grace, who produced and starred in Oscilloscope’s 2013 film “It’s a Disaster,” and follows a struggling stand-up comic (Karpovsky) who goes on tour to open for his successful singer-songwriter friend (Russell).
Grace is producing alongside Ryland Aldrich.
Written in the vein of “Sideways” and “Once,” pic is based on Grace’s own stand-up touring experience with that of real-life inspiration musician Adam Erza, who is also providing an original soundtrack.
Shooting on the indie begins this fall.
