Laura Dern has been cast in indie film Strings.

Transformers actor Josh Duhamel has already signed up for the debut movie by director Daniel Duran, who is known for making more than 50 music videos.

The Hollywood Reporter describes Strings as a "music-orientated indie" film which follows a young, drug-addicted DJ (Lucas Till), who is ordered by a court to live with his estranged father.

Josh plays an army veteran-turned-counsellor in the film, written by Oscar Torres, who makes a shocking discovery when he treats the DJ.

Wild At Heart star Laura is currently filming When The Game Stands Tall and is also about to work on Mothers Day, with Sharon Stone, Susan Sarandon and Christina Ricci.

Dern will play Mary, a beautiful, but beaten-down woman who has never recovered from the death of her eldest son.

The film just began shooting in Winnipeg, Canada.

Dern's schedule opened up after the cancellation of HBO's Enlightened. She was last seen playing an eerily dedicated follower in Paul Thomas Anderson's enigmatic drama The Master.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

You are being overly critical of your best friend or romantic partner. Even if you think their plans are ill founded, you should keep such thoughts to yourself. Undermining a person's enthusiasm will only create resentment. If you're tired of being implicated in your loved one's harebrained schemes, have a heart to heart discussion. A temporary separation can help each of you figure out what you want from your relationship. It may be time for you to seek a more practical companion.More
