Fonda, Keener join 'Peace' pic
Bruce Beresford to direct indie effort
BCDF Pictures is producing and financing the picture, which is eyeing a July start in New York's Hudson River Valley.
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.
Brice Dal Farra, Claude Dal Farra, Lauren Munsch and Jonathan Burkhart are producing the drama.
Gersh-repped 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.
The Gersh-repped Keener most recently starred in "Cyrus," "Please Give" and "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief." She's now filming Julian Farino's ensemble drama "The Oranges" with Hugh Laurie, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody.
For Fonda, the movie sees her in a matriarchal role once again after her most recent screen appearance, 2007's "Georgia Rule." She played a grandmother in that three-generational drama.
