Kinnear and Connelly board indie drama.

Variety reports that writer-director Josh Boone has lined up Greg Kinnear (‘Little Miss Sunshine’) and Jennifer Connelly (‘He’s Just Not That Into You’) to top-line his feature directing debut ‘Writers.’

Described as “a funny and touching tale of a fractured family,” the story explores the complicated relationships between a successful novelist, his ex-wife, collegiate daughter and teenage son.

Production is scheduled to start in March, with Judy Cairo, Michael A. Simpson and Eric Brenner of Informant Media producing.
