The L Word actress Katherine Moennig is set to star in Lane 1974.
Lane 1974 will be directed by S.J. Chiro, and is based on Clane Hayward’s memoir, The Hypocrisy of Disco.
It follows a 13-year-old played by newcomer Sophia Mitri Schloss who attempts to live within the confines of her mother’s (Moennig) bizarrely rigid counter culture philosophies in a commune in Northern California.
Chiro, who grew up on two communes in the ‘70s, is making her directorial debut with the project.
Talking on casting Moennig, Chiro said
Katherine Moennig was the actress I immediately thought of to play Hallelujah. Working with her has been one of the great joys of my career. Kate is a sharp, incisive, and straightforward person, much like the woman she plays. She is able to bring incredible depth and humanity to a complicated role. I can’t wait for the world to see a very different side of Kate Moennig.”
As we all know Moennig is known for playing Shane McCutcheon in the The L Word, but she is currently starring on Showtime series Ray Donovan as Lena.
And this week she is set to share the screen again in the she with Sarah Shahi. Go #sharmen
