The “Glory Days” are ahead. Jeremy Allen White is reportedly in talks to portray Bruce Springsteen in an upcoming biopic about the New Jersey native, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The upcoming film is set to focus on the making of The Boss’ 1982 album, Nebraska, and will be based on the 2023 Warren Zanes deep-dive novel of the same name. Per THR, Scott Cooper will be adapting the book into a screenplay and will also direct, with Eric Robinson and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein as producers and Gotham Group backing the film.

Springsteen has previously said that Nebraska, his sixth studio album, is his most definitive work. “If I had to pick out one album and say, ‘This is going to represent you 50 years from now’ I’d pick Nebraska,” he told CBS Sunday Morning in 2023. The project peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart dated Oct. 30, 1982.

White, who is known for his roles in The Iron Claw, Shameless and more, took the award season by storm due to his role as Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto in the FX comedy-drama series The Bear. The 33-year-old star won a number of best actor awards for his role on The Bear this year, including two Critics’ Choice Awards, two Golden Glob Awards, two SAG Awards, an Emmy Award and more.

At the time of publication, there is no information on production or timeline plans for the upcoming biopic.
