According to The Pulse Of Radio, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS bassist Flea has landed a role in a new movie called "Boy Erased". The movie is a coming-of-age and coming-out drama from writer/director Joel Edgerton, who is also an actor best known for his roles in "Loving" and "Midnight Special". It tells the story of a 19-year-old man named Jared, the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents and must either attend a gay conversion therapy program or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith.
Based on a true story, "Boy Erased" is adapted from "Boy Erased: A Memoir Of Identity, Faith, And Family" by Garrard Conley, who serves as a consultant on the film.
Flea's role in the film was not disclosed, but he joins a cast that includes Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe as Jared's parents and Lucas Hedges as Jared, along with Cherry Jones, Xavier Dolan, YouTube personality Troye Sivan and Edgerton.
The movie will begin production this fall for a 2018 theatrical release.
The CHILI PEPPERS have been on the road behind their eleventh studio effort, "The Getaway", which came out in June 2016.
