'Necessary Roughness' thesp joins Michael Pitt starrer

“Necessary Roughness” star Hannah Marks is set to join Michael Pitt in Robinson Devor’s “You Can’t Win,” which is an adaptation of adventurer Jack Black’s 1926 autobiographical novel of the same name.

“You Can’t Win” chronicles Black’s experiences in the hobo underworld as he freight-hops around the Western U.S. and Canada.

Marks will play a tomboy in the late 1800s who turns to prostitution after leaving her home and family. She forms an unusual friendship with young Black, who helps her escape that lifestyle.

Parts & Labor principals Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy will produce with Robert Scarff and Zach Sebastian, as well as Pitt, who co-wrote the script with Devor, Barry Gifford and Charles Mudede. Pic will start production later this month in Seattle.

Marks, who plays Callie Thorne’s daughter on USA’s “Necessary Roughness,” previously recurred on Showtime’s “Weeds.” Thesp also appeared alongside Kristen Stewart in “The Runaways” and will next be seen as Missy Kallenback in Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Marks is repped by Coast to Coast & Untitled Entertainment.
