David Duchovny has reportedly joined the cast of drama After The Fall.
The Californication star and Hope Davis are set to portray grieving parents John and Brenda Fareri, reported Deadline.
Based on the true-life story, which has been adapted by Carroll Cartwright, Anthony Fabian's film follows the couple, who were inspired to build a state-of-the-art children's hospital after the unexpected death of their young daughter.
The medical centre has since become a template for other facilities for families of ill children.
Timothy Hutton would play a man who helped them obtain funds for the Maria Fareri Children's Hospital.
Producer Anthony Mastromauro of Identity Films said: "John and Brenda Fareri are truly extraordinary people."
Filming is getting under way in Connecticut.
