About The Bikeriders:

Director Jeff Nichols has since stepped away from A Quiet Place: Day One, in favor of directing the upcoming feature film "The Bikeriders."

"The Bikeriders" is based on the 1968 book of the same name. The film was inspired by Danny Lyon, a photographer who captured and participated in the 1960s Civil Rights Movement. In general, Lyon was known for actively engaging with whatever he was photographing during this period, which is how he wound up joining the Chicago Outlaws motorcycle club in his efforts to document the '60s Midwestern motorcyclist culture for "The Bikeriders."

"The Bikeriders" is a fictional story that Jeff Nichols came up with after being inspired by Danny Lyon's book of the same name. Deadline describes the movie as follows:

"The film is an original story set in the 1960s following the rise of a fictional Midwestern motorcycle club. Seen through the lives of its members, the club evolves over the course of a decade from a gathering place for local outsiders into a more sinister gang, threatening the original group's unique way of life."

"The Bikeriders" could be interpreted as an allegory about the beginning and end of counter-cultural movements in the 1960s, such as (obviously) that of Midwestern motorcyclists Lyon based his work off of.

Jeff Nichols is adapting "The Bikeriders" from his script, with Sarah Green and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones producing through their company, Tri-State. The film is being produced by New Regency, and filming will begin in October 2022. It stars Tom Hardy, Jodie Comer, and Austin Butler and is set to begin production in October 2022.

The film, which tells an original story, is based on Danny Lyon's photography book of the same name.

According to Deadline, Nichols' follow-up, The Bikeriders, now has a star-studded cast. Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, and Tom Hardy have been added to the project based on Danny Lyon's book of the same name.

The film's cast shows promise for The Bikeriders, with actors like Comer, Butler, and Hardy. Comer is a talented and award-winning actress who has shown her skills in films such as Help and Killing Eve. Meanwhile, British actor Hardy is known for his roles in mind-bending psychological thrillers like Inception and Butler's title character role in Baz Luhrmann's Elvis biopic. With a promising cast like this, The Bikeriders looks like an exciting film.

The style of writing this work is somewhat unusual, as it draws on a photographic project by a critical documentary photographer. Lyon's book consists entirely of photographs of motorcyclists in 1968. However, it was not considered noteworthy in photography when it was first published. Modern documentarians now regard Lyon's book to be a groundbreaking and highly influential piece of photography art.

Nichols' film, set in the 1960s, follows a Midwestern motorcycle club as it goes from a tight-knit community rebelling against societal norms to an ominously dangerous biker gang intent on ousting dissenters. It is an original story with no natural narrative arc to translate directly onto the screen.

'The Bikeriders' production team will have Sarah Green and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones producing for Tri-State--a production company that Nichols also uses--with New Regency serving as another producer. Fred Berger is set to be the executive producer.

Deadline reports that Nichols has been working on the project since earlier this year, and it's no surprise that another project of his has an AAA-list cast. His previous movies include Mud, with Matt McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, and Take Shelter, with Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain. Nichols is also producing Yankee Comandante, based on David Grann's New Yorker article of the same name; Adam Driver will star as the film's main character.
