What is being described as "a multi-generational indie film" will be directed by Bruce Beresford. The actor was set to star in the Footloose remake, but reportedly backed out due to conflicts with Gossip Girl's shooting schedule.

The plot is said to follow Keener's character who, after getting divorced, takes her kids to live with their hippie grandmother, played by Jane Fonda. As for Crawford, he'll play a "war-protesting butcher."

The movie is set to start production next month.
