Gathering together to accompany Kevin Costner in the cast list, Dennis Hopper, Nathan Lane, Kelsey Grammer, Stanley Tucci, George Lopez, and newcomer Madeline Carroll have all landed deals to take part in populist comedy "Swing Vote."
While Costner has been confirmed to play an apathetic working-class single dad thrust on the world stage when the presidential election comes down to his vote, Hopper and Grammer are reported to become the Democratic candidate and Republican incumbent with Lane and Tucci potraying their respective campaign managers. Lopez, in the meantime, is billed as the local TV station manager whose town is descended upon by the political machinery of both parties.
Filming is due to begin on July 23 in Albuquerque, New Mexico under the direction of Joshua Michael Stern who is set to perform the task from a script he wrote alongside Jason Richman. Apart from starring, Costner is also financing the flick as well as producing with his longtime partner at Tig Productions, Jim Wilson.
