BRUCE DERN and Dakota Johnson are joining Shia LaBeouf in “The Peanut Butter Falcon.”

Tyler Nilson and Mike Schwartz wrote and will direct the story about a crab fisherman as he embarks on a journey to get a young man with Down syndrome to a professional wresting school in rural North Carolina and away from the retirement home where he’s lived most of his life.

Newcomer Zachary Gottsagen, who is the inspiration for the film, will play the principal character of Zak.

Dern was a part of the ensemble in Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight.” Johnson is set to star opposite Tilda Swinton and Chloe Moretz in the ballerina drama “Suspiria.”
