Matthew Perry and Hilary Swank are set to star in "Laws of Motion," an indie comedy scheduled to begin production this month.
Perry plays a husband struggling with life in a repressive career and community, and with headaches caused by his free-spirited brother and sister. Swank will take on a supporting role as the all-too-perfect neighbor of Perry's harried character. She will also serve as a producer.
Ben Foster ("Six Feet Under") is in negotiations to play the brother.
Perry, best known for starring in TV's "Friends," saw his most recent film, "Numb," premiere at the recent Tribeca Film Festival. He received both a Golden Globe and SAG Award nomination for his role in TNT's "The Ron Clark Story."
Swank's recent credits include Paramount Pictures' "Freedom Writers" and Warner Bros.' "The Reaping."
