Three-time Academy Award nominee Diane Ladd and newcomer Eden Brolin have been cast in writer/director Katie Cokinos' debut film "I Dream Too Much." An independent feature film about a imaginative recent college grad who finds herself caring for her formidable Great Aunt in snowy upstate New York, the dramedy will also star "Orange Is The New Black"'s Danielle Brooks.

Two-time Academy Award nominee Richard Linklater ("Before Midnight") will executive produce the film alongside James Thames for 77 Films and Ed McWilliams for Attic Lights Films in association with Pantheon of Women. Principal photography kicks off in New York in February.

It'll be great to see Diane Ladd back on the big screen following her wonderful supporting turn as a widow and domineering mother in the HBO series "Enlightened" (RIP). But look no further than David Lynch's "Wild at Heart" for Ladd's most unhinged, indomitable work -- a role that landed her the Oscar nomination.
