Composer and producer T Bone Burnett will produce original music for the film and soundtrack. Duvall and Robert Carliner are producing via their Butchers Run Films banner. Judy Cairo, Cooper and Burnett are also producing. Bridges, Michael A. Simpson, Eric Brenner and Jeff Yapp exec produce.

Shooting is scheduled to start next month in and around Santa Fe, N.M.

CMT, a unit of Viacom’s MTV Networks, produced “Broken Bridges” and “Dale.”

Indie film financing and production company Informant’s upcoming slate includes a biopic on soccer star and social activist George Weah, with Sunu Gonera (“Pride”) directing.

Bridges, who is currently onscreen in “Iron Man,” will perform original songs in “Crazy Heart.”
