‘Laramie’ gains Linney, Ricci, Buscemi

Pic set in aftermath of Matthew Shepard murder

Laura Linney, Steve Buscemi and Christina Ricci have signed up to headline the ensemble cast of Good Machine/HBO Films’ drama “The Laramie Project” for director Moises Kaufman.

The previously announced project, which starts shooting today, will also feature Janeane Garofalo, Joshua Jackson, Camryn Manheim, Jeremy Davies and Peter Fonda.

“Laramie Project,” based on Kaufman’s stage play of the same name, is set in the Wyoming town during the aftermath of the murder of 19-year-old gay college student Matthew Shepard. Declan Baldwin produces.

Bill Irwin, Mark Webber, Dylan Baker and Terry Kinney complete the cast.

HBO pic portrays those directly affected by the events surrounding Shepard’s death and the subsequent trials. It will air on the cabler later this year.

Good Machine’s VP of production Ross Katz, Good Machine co-founder Ted Hope and Good Machine’s senior VP of development Anne Carey will share exec producing credit on the film, with Roy Gabay and Peter Cane as co-exec producers.

Good Machine recently completed production on Michel Gondry’s “Human Nature,” to screen out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival; Todd Solondz’s “Storytelling,” for New Line Cinema/Fine Line Features; and Nicole Holofcener’s untitled follow-up to “Walking & Talking.”
