Anne Heche is set to join the dark comedy Arthur Newman, Golf Pro starring opposite Colin Firth and Emily Blunt.

Commercials helmer Dante Ariola is directing the comedy from a script by Becky Johnston.

Colin Firth stars as a man who hates his job and is despised by his family. Feeling he missed his shot at living the dream, he decides to fake his own death and create a new identity. He meets a young woman (Emily Blunt) with her own troubled past, and the duo start breaking into empty homes to pose as the absent owners.

Anne Heche will play Colin Firth's girlfriend, who treats him terribly.

Arthur Newman, Golf Pro will begin production this month in North Carolina.
