Veteran indie filmmaker Joe Swanberg has wrapped production on his latest movie “Digging for Fire,” which has added Anna Kendrick, Orlando Bloom, Jenny Slate and Mike Birbiglia to previously announced cast members Jake Johnson, Rosemarie DeWitt, Sam Rockwell and Brie Larson, an individual familiar with the project told TheWrap.
