Hawke to star in, direct and write new movie
The Hottest State will not be the Gattaca and Training Day star's debut behind the camera, after directing Chelsea Walls, which featured Uma Thurman, Natasha Richardson and Kris Kristofferson.
Lining up in front of the camera alongside Hawke in the new movie will be Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full Of Grace), Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) and Laura Linney (Mystic River).
The film will also not be Hawke's first writing credit as alongside co-star Julie Delpy he helped in penning the script for Before Sunset, Richard Linklater's sequel to Before Sunrise.
Before The Hottest State Hawke will hook up with Patricia Arquette, Kristofferson and Moreno in Linklater's Fast Food Nation.
