Actors Dane DeHaan and Rooney Mara have been tapped to star in a new movie musical set in the 1920s.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actor will play the titular character of Ziggy, a hunchback escape artist who arrives in New York City in the late 1920s and falls in love with Mara's character, a powerful media mogul's fiancee.

Moulin Rouge! director Baz Luhrmann's protege Diesel Schwarze will make his feature directorial debut with the project, and Grammy-nominated producer Alex Da Kid will curate the score.

Da Kid, who has collaborated with artists such as Eminem, Dr. Dre, Rihanna, Imagine Dragons and Nicki Minaj, will be developing the original music with Schwarze, DeHaan and Mara.
