LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Tatum O'Neal has been cast in the title role of the indie drama "Sweet Lorraine."

She will play a former queen of the New York underground scene who, after moving to small-town New Jersey, gets caught up in local politics when her ex-lover becomes the mayor.

The actress recently completed shooting the indie feature "The Runaways," opposite Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning. She also has a recurring role on the FX series "Rescue Me." O'Neal received an Oscar, aged 10, for her supporting role in "Paper Moon."
