Chace Crawford Seeks “Love & Understanding”

“Gossip Girl” hunk du jour Chace Crawford has joined the indie family drama “Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding” for BCDF Pictures says Variety.

The story follows conservative lawyer Diane (Catherine Keener) who, after her husband leaves her, takes her kids to the home of her estranged, hippie mother (Jane Fonda) in Woodstock.

What started out as a much needed break quickly becomes a reminder of why Diane escaped her mother’s hippie lifestyle in the first place. Crawford will play a war-protesting butcher who catches the eye of Diane’s politically active and intellectual daughter.

Bruce Beresford directs from a script by Christina Mengert and Joseph Muszynski. Filming kicks off this July in New York’s Hudson River Valley.
