Justin Long has signed on to star in the indie film, Patriotville.

Written and directed by Talmage Cooley, the flick follows Chase Revere (Long) when he discovers that an Indian casino is about to be built over the town's historic battlefield; Production Weekly notes Chase is the self-appointed protector of his town. He joins forces with the sexy but quirky Lucy Shanks to launch an all-out offensive against the project, earning the wrath of the entire town, who belive the casino will save their dying, rust-belt community.

Production for Patriotville is scheduled to begin next month in South Carolina; no release date has been set.
