Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno, and Sally Field will play the quartet," wrote The Hollywood Reporter who broke the news.
Brady was heavily involved since the ideation of the project and worked closely with Donna Gigliotti, the producer behind the Oscar-winning movies Silver Linings Playbook and Shakespeare in Love, to create the film. Kicks and The Climb director Kyle Marvin will serve as executive director.
While the forthcoming film may be Brady's first big role in a Hollywood production, he's previously made cameo appearances in Entourage, Ted 2, Family Guy, and more.
