SUDBURY, Ont. - Ethan Hawke is playing legendary jazz trumpeter Chet Baker in a new film to be shot in Sudbury, Ont.

"Born to Blue," is also set to star Callum Keith Rennie ("Fifty Shades of Grey").

The majority of the film's production is due to take place in the northern Ontario city and principal photography is already underway.

Written and directed by Robert Budreau ("That Beautiful Somewhere"), Hawke has helped develop the project.

The actor is having a banner year. He's generating Oscar buzz for his role in "Boyhood" and stars in the upcoming drama "The Good Kill," about drone warfare. He's also receiving acclaim for his documentary "Seymour: An Introduction," about pianist Seymour Bernstein.

Entertainment One (eOne) will distribute "Born to Blue" in Canada.
