The comedy that J.J. Abrams is producing gets some more casting done

Variety has the casting announcements:

Diane Keaton and Jeff Goldblum have signed on to join Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams in the comedy "Morning Glory" for Paramount Pictures.
J.J. Abrams is producing the film, which centers on an aspiring news producer (McAdams) who tries to save a failing morning show by getting control of its feuding anchors. Ford and Keaton will play the dueling on-air personalities. Goldblum will portray McAdams' boss.
Roger Michell will direct the pic, which is scheduled to begin lensing next month in New York.
"The Devil Wears Prada" scribe Aline Brosh McKenna penned the screenplay.
Abrams and Bryan Burk are producing for Abrams' Par-based Bad Robot shingle. Sherryl Clark and Guy Riedel are exec producing.
Keaton, who co-starred with McAdams in "The Family Stone," most recently toplined the bank heist comedy "Mad Money."
Goldblum, who just booked a role in Mandate Pictures' "The Baster" alongside Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston, most recently starred in "Adam Resurrected." He also stars as Detective Zach Nichols on "Law and Order: Criminal Intent."
