Kevin Costner will star in and produce indie election comedy "Swing Vote" with Joshua Michael Stern at helm.

Snatching a contrasting part from that in the upcoming thriller drama "Mr. Brooks" as his next acting stint, Kevin Costner has signed on to topline an indie election comedy entitled "Swing Vote" that he also sets to produce.

Here the versatile actor is billed as a single father thrust into the national spotlight when the presidential election comes down to his vote. Filming is scheduled to begin this July with Joshua Michael Stern directing from the script he wrote alongside Jason Richman.

Accompanying Costner to produce is Jim Wilson, who will carry out the duty via their newly-minted Treehouse Films and so, make the flick the first project to come under the company banner. An offshoot of their Tig Productions, Treehouse will produce film, television, and online content produced fully by Costner.

"Treehouse will give me (the) opportunity to shepherd projects from the ground up, with the goal of aligning partners of a like mind," so Costner remarked. "'Swing Vote' fits right into that mold."
