LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener are teaming up for a little “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding,” a multigenerational indie film to be directed by Bruce Beresford.
Christina Mengert and Joseph Muszynski wrote the script, which centers on a conservative lawyer (Keener) who, after her husband leaves her, takes her son and daughter to the house of their estranged, hippie grandmother (Fonda) in Woodstock, where they each find love in unexpected places.
BCDF Pictures is producing and financing the picture, which is eyeing a July start in New York’s Hudson River Valley.
Beresford, best known for directing dramas “Tender Mercies” and “Driving Miss Daisy,” helmed “Mao’s Last Dancer,” which the Samuel Goldwyn Co. released last year.
Keener stars in Nicole Holofcener’s recently released “Please Give,” and will appear this summer in the comedy “Cyrus.” She’s now filming Julian Farino’s ensemble drama “The Oranges” with Hugh Laurie, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody.
Fonda’s most recent screen appearance was in 2007’s “Georgia Rule,” a three-generation drama in which she played the grandmother of Lindsay Lohan’s character.
