Ron Perlman, Taryn Manning, Joe Pantoliano and Patrick Flueger have signed on to star in Shem Bitterman's dark comic drama The Job.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bitterman is adapting his 1998 play about a hapless man named Bubba (Flueger) who is desperate to find a job and marry the woman he loves (Manning). A drifter (Perlman) hooks him up with a slick employment agent (Pantoliano), but after agreeing to the job, Bubba finds that he is in over his head.

Production begins today in Detroit.
