Three actors are setting their sights on an indie drama.

Sean Bean, Eva Longoria and Kate Walsh have joined the feature Any Day, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

Any Day centers on an ex-fighter Vian (Bean), who is transformed by the love and forgiveness he experiences through his 11-year-old nephew, Jimmy.

Longoria will play Jolene, a mortgage broker who meets Vian in the grocery store, while he is with Jimmy. After a few false starts, Jolene agrees to go on a date with Vian, but her vindictive ex-boyfriend reveals some troubling information about Vian.

Walsh has been cast as Bethley, Vian's older sister. A tough, yet alluring single mother who's been working all her life, Bethley's husband ran off with another woman leaving her struggling to make ends meet. She is strong in her religious faith and lets Vian live in her garage for a few weeks.

Rustam Branaman will direct from his original screenplay.

Principal photography begins Oct. 21 in Los Angeles.

"This is a story that is very close to my heart, filled with themes that fascinate me: transformation in one's life, the possibility of something that goes beyond the material realm, the weaving of love and forgiveness, while maintaining the deep sense of unpredictable irony that exists with all humans," said Branaman.

Jaguar Entertainment's Jeanette Zhou, The Marshak/Zachary Co.'s Darryl Marshak and Pantheon Entertainment's Andrew Sugerman are producers. Harlan Bosmajian (Lovely and Amazing) is the director of photography. This is the first movie to be financed by Jaguar Entertainment.

Bean, who had a memorable turn as Ned Stark on HBO's Game of Thrones, stars in the upcoming Jupiter Ascending and TNT's Legends pilot, is repped by CAA, Independent Talent and Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum Morris & Klein. Longoria, next starring in Frontera, is repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment and Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal Laviolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman. Walsh's forthcoming films include Dermaphoria, Just Before I Go and Staten Island Summer; she is repped by CAA and Morris Yorn.

Branaman is repped by Mike De Trana at Anvil Entertainment. The producers are repped by attorney Kevin Mills.
