Molly Sims has joined the cast of Velveteen Films' indie drama Hickory Nation.

Written and directed by Velveteen's Rebecca Cook, the film revolves around a small Maine coastal community dealing with the aftermath of a mysterious hit-and-run accident. The event brings together a teacher and her two students, each struggling with secrets and lies.

Sims (Las Vegas) plays a teacher in the town who lost her daughter. Aimee Teegarden (Friday Night Lights) plays a local beauty queen who is one of her students.

The project, set to begin next summer, marks Velveteen's fourth feature for the indie production company, which hangs its shingle in both Boston and New York City. Since its formation in 1999, the company produced three films, The Gypsy Years in 2000; A Touch of Fate in 2003; and 2005's Shooting Livien.

Sims is repped by WMA and Untitled.

Teegarden is repped by Innovative Artists.
