They join Elisabeth Shue and Disturbia's Sarah Roemer, who already have been cast in the indie film written by Katherine Brooks, who also is directing.

Manning plays Margaret, a fellow patient with sociopathic tendencies who resides at the psychiatric hospital with Madison. Patton plays Madison's loving but emotionally absent father.

The film is a joint production between Annapurna Prods. and Fixed Point Films. Megan Ellison, Jonah Hirsch and Ted Schipper are producing.

Shooting is set to begin today in New Orleans.

Shue Plans Tennis Career

10 April 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Leaving Las Vegas star Elisabeth Shue is in training to become a professional tennis player. The Oscar-nominated actress admits she has always been pretty good at the sport and now she's working on a second career on the courts of America. She explains, "It's always been a dream of mine. I don't think I'll be playing at the (tennis tournament) US Open, but, by September, I'd like to be competing professionally, even at the lowest level. I've been training so hard, now I feel like more of a tennis player than an actress." »
