Home Celebrity Billy Joel Will Lend Motorcyles, Work on Soundtrack for Indie Biker Movie

Billy Joel is getting into the movie business, sort of. He’s organizing the soundtrack and lending his motorcycles for an indie biker movie called “American Dresser.” Billy is listed as Consulting Producer. The film stars Stephen Lang, veteran Wes Studi and a New York actor named Carmine Cangialosi. The movie shoots in Long Island Mexico beginning this September. I guess the soundrack will be songs from Billy’s massive catalog. A casting call has gone out, it’s all on the up and up, but no one’s registered the film yet on the imdb.com. Updates to come…

Here’s the synopsis:

In this modern day western, old friends John Moore and Charlie Wildhorse are
brought together by unfortunate circumstances that turn into an opportunity for both to fulfill a life
long dream of riding their motorcycles West from Long Island, New York. Once on the open road
the ride takes an unexpected turn, in the form of a young loner named Willie. After some
problems and a few states, the three men from two very different generations slowly begin to
understand one another, while learning a little something about themselves as they cross our
breathtaking and diverse country. The adventures they encounter along the way will last a
lifetime, while making the heart pump and the imagination run wild.
“People get older but dreams are ageless.”
