Abigail Breslin added to Janie Jones

In what sounds like the indie rock take on The Game Plan, Abigail Breslin has been cast as the unexpected sprog of a fading rocker in Janie Jones.

She's joining the cast of the movie alongside Alessandro Nivola (below) and Elisabeth Shue, while Frank Whalley, Peter Stomare and Joel David Moore are all already aboard.

David M Rosenthal wrote the script and will direct the film, which sees drug-addled groupie Shue abandon her daughter (Breslin) at a concert lead by Nivola's has-been rocker, who is shocked to discover he's a dad.

Rosenthal kicks off shooting this week in Iowa.
