NEW YORK — “Spin City’s” Connie Britton and Jon Bon Jovi will star with Edward Burns and Lauren Holly in Burns’ new film, “Long Time, Nothing New,” which will be distributed by Gramercy Pictures.

The role marks the second time Britton has worked under Burns’ direction, having played the faithful wife of a straying husband in Burns’ feature directorial debut, “The Brothers McMullen.”

Britton’s deal was negotiated by Gary Gersh and Steven Levy at Innovative Artists and by her attorney, Deborah Klein, at Bloom, Hergott, Cook and Klein.

Written by Burns, “Long Time” is about a small-town woman who finds the courage to leave her past behind. The drama recently began lensing in Gotham. Burns is producing “Long Time, Nothing New” with Michael Nozik and Ted Hope, whose Gotham-based production company Good Machine has a first-look agreement with 20th Century Fox.
