Paramount have just flung over the press release :

BRAD GARRETT JOINS “THE UNTITLED DAVID CHASE PROJECT” AS CHASE ROUNDS OUT CASTING FOR HIS FEATURE FILM DEBUT AT PARAMOUNT
James Gandolfini, Bella Heathcote Christopher McDonald, Molly Price and Lisa Lampanelli Also Attached

HOLLYWOOD, CA (February 3, 2011) – David Chase rounds out the cast for his upcoming film debut for Paramount Pictures.  The creator and producer of the multiple Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning critically acclaimed series The Sopranos, announced today that Everybody Loves Raymond star Brad Garrett will be featured in the director’s music-driven story set in 1960’s suburbia. James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), Bella Heathcote (Beneath Hill 60, Neighbors), Christopher McDonald (Boardwalk Empire, Harry’s Law), Molly Price (Bionic Woman, Third Watch) and comedian Lisa Lampanelli also join the film, which is set to begin principal photography in New York.
Said Chase, “Brad brings a funny, wry intelligence to his role as a composer / music producer.”
As previously reported, Chase and Gandolfini are re-uniting on this film, after an acclaimed six-year collaboration on The Sopranos. Elaborating on Gandolfini’s role, Chase said, “It is so great to be working with Jim again.  He is the perfect actor for this part – a postwar, post-Depression era parent who has given his kid every advantage that he didn’t have growing up, but now can’t help feeling jealous of the liberated, more adventurous destiny his son is able to enjoy.”
Price will portray the boy’s mother in the movie, with Lampanelli playing his Aunt. Christopher McDonald plays the father of his love interest (Bella Heathcote).
Chase previously announced that actors John Magaro and Will Brill, as well as Jack Huston, who has been recently receiving acclaim for his role as Richard Harrow – the man with the shattered face – on HBO’s Golden Globe®-winning Boardwalk Empire, will star in the movie, to be released by Paramount Vantage. Chase, who wrote the original script, will produce alongside Oscar®-winning producer Mark Johnson (Rain Man, The Chronicles of Narnia). Steven Van Zandt is an Executive Producer and will serve as the film’s Music Supervisor.
Brad Garrett is repped by WME Entertainment, Raw Talent Management and Gendler & Kelly, APC. James Gandolfini is repped by CAA and Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management. Bella Heathcote is repped by WME Entertainment and Jackson-Medavoy Entertainment. Christopher McDonald is repped by The Gersh Agency and Brillstein. Molly Price is repped by Gersh. Lisa Lampanelli is repped by CAA and Parallel Entertainment.
