According to Variety, Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) will join Cameron Diaz, Dakota Fanning and Elle Fanning in My Sister's Keeper, the Nick Cassavetes-directed adaptation of the Jodi Picoult novel for New Line.

Baldwin will play the attorney who represents a child (Elle Fanning) after she sues her parents for emancipation on the grounds they bred her to be a genetic match who could prolong the life of her cancer-ridden sister (Dakota Fanning). The girl's mother (Diaz) is a former trial lawyer and represents herself in court.
