Dustin Hoffman boosted the profile of retired, classical musicians last year with Quartet, and he'll do the same for boy choirs next year, starring in the indie drama 'Boychoir'.
'The story centers on a troubled and angry 11-year-old from the wrong side of the tracks who finds himself at an East Coast school, where he engages in a battle of wills with a demanding choir master, played by Hoffman, who recognizes a unique talent in the boy. [Alfred] Molina will play a teacher at the school, and [Kathy] Bates will portray the school’s headmistress.'
Filming is slated for February 2014 in Connecticut and New York.The troubled boy singer is still uncast, but the film will feature singers from the Princeton, New Jersey-based American Boychoir School (not the Vienna Boys, above).
That plot definitely won't spawn any p0rn spin-offs. Never. And definitely not a Boychoir/Graduate mash-up. No way.
