Paula Patton has joined Alexander Skarsgard, Jason Bateman and others, in an indie drama titled Disconnect, which, according to Deadline, centers on "disparate lives that intertwine as the digital technologies intended to bring people closer together push families further apart."

Henry Alex Rubin (Murderball) is directing.

No word on what exactly her involvement will be, but I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.

Patton will next be seen in Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol this December,
