Do you think John Cusack resembles Brian Wilson ?  Producers of the planned Wilson biopic  Love & Mercy apparently do, enough to be talking to Cusack about playing Wilson int he film.

According to TheWrap.com , Cusack would play the Beach Boys leader in his later years, while Paul Dano will star as young Wilson.  Love & Mercy will examine Wilson's work with the Beach Boys in the 1960s, his mental illness, and his departure from the group. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Oren Moverman wrote the script and is also one of the executive producers.

Atticus Ross , who collaborated with Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor on the Oscar-winning score for The Social Network , will work on the soundtrack.
