Chloe Sevigny, Salma Hayek, and Jay Duplass have joined the independent drama “Beatriz at Dinner” opposite John Lithgow and Connie Britton.

Miguel Arteta is directing from a script by Mike White. The story follows a holistic medicine practitioner who joins a dinner party when her car breaks down at a wealthy client’s house.

The film is a Bron Studios and Killer Films production in association with Creative Wealth Media Finance. Bron is co-financing.

Producers are Bron’s Aaron L. Gilbert and Killer Films chief Christine Vachon along with Pam Koffler and David Hinojosa. Jason Cloth of Creative Wealth Media Finance and Lewis Hendler are executive producing.

Killer produced “Carol” with Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and the upcoming “Wonderstruck,” directed by Todd Haynes and starring Julianne Moore.

Bron’s credits include a pair of awards-season contenders: Nate Parker’s upcoming “The Birth of a Nation” for Fox Searchlight and Denzel Washington’s “Fences” for Paramount.

Sevigny stars in Whit Stillman’s “Love And Friendship” opposite Kate Beckinsale, and is in the Netflix original series “Bloodline.” Hayek will next appear opposite Alec Baldwin in “Drunk Parents” for Bron Studios, and in “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson.

Duplass and his brother Mark have a four-picture deal with Netflix, which includes “Manson Family Vacation.”

Arteta’s credits include “Cedar Rapids,” “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” and “Chuck and Buck,” which White also wrote.

Sevigny is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, Hayek is repped by CAA and Management 360, and Duplass is repped by ICM Partners. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
