Vera Farmiga is currently on US TV screens in the Psycho prequel Bates Motel, but soon she’ll be heading back to cinemas as THR reports she has signed on to star in The Judge for director David Dobkin.
Robert Downey Jr. is set to play a big city lawyer who returns to his hometown for his mother’s funeral. Once there he learns that his elderly father (Robert Duvall), the local judge, is the prime suspect in her death. Vera 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 as Downey Jr’s brother.
Shooting on the movie is due to kick off this June in Boston.
