Alessandro Nivola, Elisabeth Shue and Abigail Breslin have been cast in the indie drama "Janie Jones," along with Frank Whaley, Brittany Snow, Peter Stormare and Joel David Moore.

Breslin will play the title role, a young girl abandoned by her drug-addicted, former-groupie mother (Shue) at a concert and surprises the fading rock singer who's performing (Nivola) with news that she is his daughter.
