Giovanni Ribisi, Lukas Hass and Erika Christensen (a/k/a The Anti-Julia Stiles) have joined the cast of The Gardener of Eden; an independent film produced by Leonardo DiCaprio which Martha first told you about earlier this month. Directed by Entourage star Kevin Connolly, pic is a dark comedy about a guy who accidentally saves a girl's life, only to feed off the exposure and set out to become a vigilante.

Although DiCaprio is producing, chances of him actually showing up in the film are slim to none - so don't go getting your hopes up, girls. Connolly will officially mark his directorial debut with Gardener, off a script written by Adam "Tex" Davis (Just Friends.) Actually, I was lucky enough to read an early draft of this script awhile back and it was absolutely outstanding. I want to say it felt like a modern-day Taxi Driver, but for some reason, I don't see Lukas Haas (remember the Amish boy in Witness?) pulling off a De Niro-esque performance. Gardener is currently shooting in and around New York City.
