Actor Dennis Hopper will star in the television adaptation of the film Crash for Starz, the network announced Thursday.
Hopper will play “Ben” a maverick music producer looking for one final score.
Starz green-lit the adaptation in January, giving the one hour drama series a 13 episode pickup.
Thanks to an interim agreement with the Writers Guild of America, Lionsgate, which is producing the show, was able to begin pre-production on Crash while most programs were stopped dead in their tracks.
Crash will debut on Starz in October.
