Danny Glover has been cast in 'Mr Pig'.
The English-language road movie set is in Mexico and focuses on the plight of a farm-worker - played by Glover, 68 - who travels from the US to Mexico accompanied by a pig, with whom he strikes up an unusual bond.
Looking forward to the new flick, producer Pablo Cruz said: "Mr Pig is a beautiful road movie, and a chance to talk about love for Mexico through the eyes of an American.
"It has a US appeal because of Danny and its English language. It obviously has a Mexican appeal because of Diego and other Mexican actors involved.
"And we're looking to Mundial to take it into international markets."
Maya Rudolph has also been cast in the film, although according to Variety, the role of the 42-year-old 'Bridesmaids' actress is still unknown.
Meanwhile, Glover has been cast alongside Alec Baldwin in sci-fi flick 'Andròn - The Black Labyrinth', which tells the story of a group of young men and women who awake in a dark maze, unaware of who or where they are.
What's more, the film will star Michelle Ryan, Jon Kortajarena and punk singer Skin.
