LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Judy Greer, Beau Bridges, Matthew Lillard and Robert Forster are joining the cast of Alexander Payne’s “The Descendants,” which begins filming Monday in Hawaii.

Based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, the film stars George Clooney as an indifferent husband and father of two girls, who is forced to re-establish his relationship with his daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident off Waikiki.

Along with the writing team of Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, Payne wrote the screen adaptation for the Fox Searchlight release.
