The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star Andrew Garfield is going back to his indie roots, signing on to star in 99 Homes for writer-director Ramin Bahrani (Man Push Cart).

The story follows a young father (Andrew Garfield) who loses his home to foreclosure. Desperate for work, he takes a job with the greedy real estate broker who took away his house, helping him evict other homeowners and embezzling money from the government. Although his financial troubles soon disappear, the man becomes morally conflicted by his new line of work.

Ramin Bahrani is directing from his own original screenplay, with Kevin Turen and Justin Nappi producing through their Treehouse Pictures company. The producers are now looking to cast the broker. No production schedule was given.

Before he donned the mask and tights in The Amazing Spider-Man and next year's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Andrew Garfield appeared in indies such as Boy a, the Red Riding trilogy, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, and Never Let Me Go.
