Gillian Jacobs has been cast opposite Kevin Costner in indie drama Black And White.

Community actress Gillian will play the girlfriend of Kevin's character's best friend, played by Bill Burr, The Hollywood Reporter revealed.

Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer will play the child's paternal grandmother, who is fighting for her son to have custody, a drug addict whose negligence could be responsible for the death of Kevin's character's wife.

The Upside of Anger's Mike Binder will direct the film from his own screenplay.

Filming has already begun in New Orleans.
