According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amy Brenneman has been cast in Jon Avnet's 88 Minutes, joining Al Pacino, Leelee Sobieski, Neal McDonough and Benjamin McKenzie.

The movie, now shooting in Vancouver, focuses on a college professor (Pacino) who moonlights as a forensic psychiatrist for the FBI and receives a death threat claiming he has only 88 minutes to live. Brenneman plays Pacino's longtime assistant who is immune to his man-about-town ways.
