Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Florence and the Machine and more are set to appear in Terrence Malick‘s new film, a music drama called Song By Song.

According to IndieWire, the film will open in the US in March.

Here’s the premise: “In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples — struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman) — chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.”
