Comedy drama role for Nixon
Cynthia Nixon is set to star in new comedy drama Life Itself.
The Sex And The City actress is joining Diane Keaton and Morgan Freeman in the movie, reported The Wrap.
The film - to be shot in New York - is based on Jill Ciment's novel Heroic Measures.
It follows a married couple (Diane and Morgan) who get caught up in a real estate bidding war when they put their much-loved Manhattan home on the market.
Cynthia will play the niece of Diane's character, who serves as her estate agent.
Producer Lori McCreary said of the project: "There's a lot of laughs, but there's also a lot of heart."
Life Itself will be directed by British filmmaker Richard Lincraine.
