Shepard, Farmiga Join “The Judge”

Vera Farmiga and Dax Shepard have joined the cast of David Dobkin’s “The Judge” at Warner Bros. Pictures, Team Downey and Big Kid Pictures.

Robert Downey Jr. plays a lawyer who returns home after his mother’s death only to learn that his estranged father, the town’s judge (Robert Duvall), is suspected of murder.

Farmiga will play a waitress who never left the small town, and has a connection to the attorney’s past. Vincent D’Onofrio also stars, while Nick Schenk penned the script.

Shooting kicks off this June in Boston.
