David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, Keri Russell, Minnie Driver and Will Arnett have joined director Christopher Neil’s directorial debut, Goats, an adaptation of Mark Jude Poirier’s novel. Graham Phillips (Evan Almighty) stars as a 15-year-old who moves in with his estranged father (Ty Burrell).

Neil is the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola. Filming begins in February.
