Pic also stars Bella Heathcote and Sam Riley.
Filming will start in September. Cross Creek Pictures, which has a distribution deal with Universal, has acquired domestic rights with a commitment for a wide U.S. release.
Burr Steers (“Charlie St. Cloud”) is directing from a screenplay he wrote with David O. Russell.
Producers are Cross Creek topper Brian Oliver, Allison Shearmur, Sean McKittrick, Natalie Portman, Annette Savitch, Tyler Thompson and Marc Butan.
Sierra/Affinity is handling foreign sales. The project had been set up with Panorama last year but came over to Sierra/Affinity with Butan earlier this year.
Greenwell, who is in Showtime’s “Shameless,” will play Booth’s sister in the pic.
She is repped by WME, Troika and Thruline Entertainment.
