Harris, Roberts and Madison Join Virginia


Variety is reporting that Ed Harris, Emma Roberts and Amy Madigan have joined the cast of independent drama What’s Wrong With Virginia, directed and written by Dustin Lance Black, Oscar-winning screenwriter of Milk.

Harris is replacing Liam Neeson, who had been attached to play the role of a sheriff whose state senate bid is jeopardized when his daughter begins to date the son of a psychologically disturbed woman with whom the sheriff has engaged in a two-decade affair.

“Virginia,” which co-stars Jennifer Connelly in the title role, will start filming on Sept. 28 in Holland, Michigan.
