Rosemarie DeWitt has boarded Disney’s The Odd Life of Timothy Green while Dianne Wiest is in negotiations to also join the cast.

Peter Hedges wrote the script and is directing the fable fantasy, which stars Jennifer Garner and Joel Edgerton.   Based on a story by Ahmet Zappa, Odd Life centers on a childless couple, unable to conceive, who bury all their wishes for a baby in a box in their backyard. One day, they wake up to find that a child is born, but the child is not all that it appears.   Shooting is due to begin January 31 in and around Atlanta. Ron Livingston, who is married to DeWitt, joined the cast earlier this week. Cameron Adams is playing the title character.   DeWitt is playing Garner’s perky sister. The actress, repped by Gersh and Global Creative, appeared in The Company Men as Ben Affleck’s wife.   Wiest will be Garner’s harsh boss. The ICM-repped actress can currently be seen in Rabbit Hole.
