Alexander Payne’s The Descendants , which started shooting today in Hawaii, has added Judy Greer, Beau Bridges, Matthew Lillard and Robert Forster to its cast line-up.
The quartet join star George Clooney in the adap of Kaui Hart Hemmings’ novel. Payne wrote the screenplay using a script by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash that had previously featured on Hollywood’s 2008 Black List.
Clooney plays an indifferent husband who begins to realise he’s been taking his life for granted when his wife and two daughters are involved in a boating accident in Waikiki.
No word who the recently-added foursome will be playing, but they join an already cool cast that includes Shailene Woodley, Mary Birdsong, Nick Krause and Amara Miller.
The flick’s being released by Fox Searchlight.
Great cast makes great flick? There's one to debate...
