Debut feature director Andrew Levitas has landed quite the cast for his upcoming comedy/drama, Lullaby.  Directing from his own script, Levitas will boast Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) and Oscar-nominees Richard Jenkins (The Visitor), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow) and Amy Adams (Junebug, Doubt, The Fighter).  Lullaby also stars up-and-comers Garrett Hedlund (TRON: Legacy) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey) in a comedic drama that looks at the transformative moments in life, a picture that draws from Levitas’ career as a fine artist.  Cast and crew are set to shoot this June in New York City.  Hit the jump for the synopsis and more on the cast.

Check andrew-levitas-lullabyout the synopsis for Lullaby below:

Filled with considerable comedic beats, LULLABY explores the power of life, its transformative moments and reconnections between loved ones. Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Hedlund) receives word that his father, Robert (Jenkins), who has been fighting illness for over a decade has chosen to take himself off life support in less than forty-eight hours. What follows is an unexpected journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness.

Hedlund can next be seen in Walter Salles’ On the Road, alongside Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and co-star, Adams.  His performance in the Coen brothers’ film Inside Llewyn Davis can be seen early next year.  Jenkins, coming off a fantastic turn in Drew Goddard’s The Cabin in the Woods, has a busy year ahead of him.  He’ll next be seen in Killing Them Softly alongside Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini. After that, you can find him in Liberal Arts, Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep and One Shot, opposite Tom Cruise.
