Alanis Morissette has joined the cast of novelist Philip K. Dick’s semiautobiograhical feature adaptation Radio Free Albemuth, says The Hollywood Reporter.
In writer-director John Alan Simon’s film, Morissette plays Sylvia, a woman who shows up in the vision of a record label executive named Nick (Jonathan Scarfe) as a glamorous singer.
In reality, she’s an ordinary woman in unexpected remission from lymphoma who, after appearing in Nick’s visions, gets a job as his secretary. She becomes his soul mate thanks to the pair’s shared spirituality and visions.
Shea Whigham (Wristcutters: A Love Story), Katheryn Winnick (Failure to Launch) and Hanna Hall (2007’s Halloween) also star.
“Radio” began filming this month in and around Los Angeles.
