Liev Schreiber will soon go Mental with PJ Hogan.

Without A Trace's Anthony LaPaglia and Rebecca Gibney have also joined the Australian director's first home-grown film since Muriel's Wedding, reported The Playlist.

Toni Collette is already on board in the black comedy, as Shaz, a hitchhiker who is brought in to babysit five girls after being hired by their adulterous politician dad.

"Like Muriel's Wedding, Mental is a comedy laced with pain and brimming with flawed but loveable characters," the director said.

"Shaz is hilarious, outrageous, dangerous, courageous, inspiring, heart-breaking and totally, totally mad."

Since the 1994 hit, which launched Toni's career, PJ - short for Paul John - has directed My Best Friend's Wedding starring Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz, Peter Pan with Jason Isaacs and Confessions Of A Shopaholic with Isla Fisher.

Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
