No, it isn't a sequel to THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS.

David Duchovny, Vera Farmiga, Keri Russell, Minnie Driver and Will Arnett have joined the cast of GOATS. Graham Phillips and Ty Burrell were previously announced as cast members. Christopher Neil, nephew of Francis Ford Coppola will make this his directing debut.

GOATS reunites Duchovny and Driver who starred in 2000's RETURN TO ME.

The script will be adapted from Mark Jude Poirier's novel. Red Crown Productions', Daniela Taplin Lundberg (THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT), will produce along with Eric Kopeloff (WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS) and Shannon Lail. Here is the synopsis and character details:

"The coming of age story follows 15 year-old, Ellis (Phillips) as he moves from Wendy, his flakey, new age mother's (Farmiga) South-Western home to an East Coast prep school where his estranged father Frank (Burrell) was once a star student. For Ellis, this means leaving behind the only real dad he has ever known, Goat Man (Duchovny), his pot-smoking, goat herding mentor, and ultimately needing to evaluate his new prep school lifestyle that's in stark contrast to his stoner upbringing. Rounding out the cast are Keri Russell as Frank's new wife, Minnie Driver as Wendy’s best friend and yogic advisor Johanna, and Will Arnett as Wendy’s boyfriend Bennett."

Absolutely a cast of underrated actors. Interesting they manage to squeeze both Will Arnett and Keri Russell into this. I don't get Showtime and have never seen an episode of Californication, but I've generally thought David Duchovny hasn't had that many opportunities to stretch as an actor in ways I'm sure he's capable of. And the pot-smoking goat herder reminds me of how I felt when the Coens decided Jeff Bridges was the right guy to play the Dude. Inspired, but also, perhaps, obvious.

I agree with the two fans below me. And that cast is great. I picture Duchovny wearing some red plaid with those horrible teeth from Zoolander.
"you freaking idiot!"
