“We are thrilled to host this incredibly talented team and provide tremendous opportunities for locals,” Film Cincinnati's Kristen Schlotman said in a release. “It’s a very exciting time for Cincinnati's own role in the film industry."

Variety confirmed the movie last week, which is named after the 1967 Danny Lyon photography book. According to Film Cincinnati, it is "an original story of a '60s midwestern motorcycle club as it evolves over the course of a decade from a community for outsiders into a far more sinister gang."

Butler recently starred in Baz Lhurmann's biopic "Elvis." Comer has appeared in four seasons of the TV drama "Killing Eve," and Tom Hardy was recently the lead in "Venom" and "Venom 2."
