Brice Dal Farra, Claude Dal Farra, Lauren Munsch and Jonathan Burkhart are producing the drama.
Gersh-repped Beresford, best known for directing dramas “Tender Mercies” and “Driving Miss Daisy,” helmed “Mao’s Last Dancer,” which the Samuel Goldwyn Co. released last year.
The Gersh-repped Keener most recently starred in “Cyrus,” “Please Give” and “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.” She’s now filming Julian Farino’s ensemble drama “The Oranges” with Hugh Laurie, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody.
For Fonda, the movie sees her in a matriarchal role once again after her most recent screen appearance, 2007’s “Georgia Rule.” She played a grandmother in that three-generational drama.
