Goodwin goes in 'Motion' for indie comedy


Ginnifer Goodwin has joined the cast of the indie comedy "Laws of Motion."

Matthew Perry, Hilary Swank and Ben Foster already have boarded the Craig Lucas-helmed project, which is being produced by Plum Pictures, Ideal Partners Film Fund and Hilary Swank Prods.

Penned by Elyse Friedman, the story centers on a husband (Perry) struggling with life in a repressive career and community and enduring headaches caused by his free-spirited brother (Foster) and sister (Goodwin). Swank will play a supporting role as the all-too-perfect neighbor of Perry's harried character.

Plum Pictures partners Daniela Taplin Lundberg, Celine Rattray and Galt Niederhoffer are producing alongside Ideal's Jana Edelbaum and Swank.

The film is shooting in Connecticut.

Goodwin, whose credits include "Walk the Line" and "Mona Lisa Smile," stars on the HBO series "Big Love."

She is repped by WMA, John Carrabino Management and attorney Michael Gendler.
