Duchovny, Farmiga join ‘Goats’ herd

Russell, Driver and Arnett also join indie comedy

David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, Keri Russell, Minnie Driver and Will Arnett have signed on to indie comedy “Goats,” which begins filming next month.

Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”) and Graham Phillips are already onboard for the pic helmed by Christopher Neil.

Duchovny appears as the kid’s de-facto father figure Goat Man, with Farmiga tapped as Ellis’ mother with Arnett and Driver cast as her boyfriend and friend, respectively. Russell appears as the new wife of Burrell’s character.

Red Crown Prods.’ Daniela Taplin Lundberg (“The Kids Are All Right”) produce with Eric Kopeloff and Shannon Lail, with Arlook Group’s Richard Arlook set to exec produce with Red Crown’s Daniel Crown and Riva Marker. Partial financing will come from exec producer Peter Touche of Sandia Media.
