Gossip Girl actor Chace Crawford has joined Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener on the cast on Bruce Beresford’s Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding.

The BCDF Pictures production will shoot in New York’s Hudson Valley and tells of an uptight New York City lawyer in desperate need of an escape after her husband asks for a divorce.

Along with her two children she takes refuge at her estranged hippie mother Grace’s farmhouse where she is exposed to a motley crew of free thinkers.

Crawford will play a war-protesting butcher who catches the eye of the lawyer’s politically active and intellectual daughter.

BCDF Pictures’ Claude Dal Farra, Brice Dal Farra, Lauren Munsch and Jonathan Burkhart are producing.
