Toni Collette - Toni Collette Signs Up For Gandolfini Comedy

Toni Collette has signed up Nicole Holofcener's new comedy.

The 'Little Miss Sunshine' actress has signed up alongside Catherine Keener, Ben Falcone and Eve Hewson to star in the movie, which already had Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini attached.

Louis-Dreyfus will play a divorced woman whose children will soon leave home and she meets a woman (Keener) she views as the embodiment of her perfect self.

So given a new outlook on being middle-aged and single, she decides to take a chance on her new love interest (Gandolfini), but things get complicated when she discovers he's her new friend's ex-husband.

Collette will play Louis-Dreyfus' friend who also happens to be Keener's therapist, while Hewson will play Keener and Gandolfini's college-bound daughter.

Fox Searchlight will produce the as-yet-unnamed film, and they say they can't wait to work with director Holofcener.

Production president Claudia Lewis said: ''We have always admired Nicole for her unique voice and storytelling abilities. For this film she has again delivered a distinctive and relatable script that this talented group of actors can really bring to life.''
