Just found this short article about Liv's upcoming project:
Altman charges next project with 'Voltage'
Jan. 17, 2002
Riding a wave of success with the very English "Gosford Park," filmmaker Robert Altman is looking homeward for his next project, "Voltage," a comedy about corporate America based on Robert Grossbach's novel "A Shortage of Engineers." The project, in the process of being financed, begins shooting in May. Alan Rudolph has adapted the screenplay for the new project, which should see Altman directing another ensemble cast, which to date includes commitments from Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Liv Tyler, William H. Macy, Steve Buscemi, Tony Shalhoub, Elliott Gould, Harry Belafonte and "Gosford" star Bob Balaban. Altman describes the project as "a comedy of manners with an American twist." Set in 1991 at an engineering firm in Long Island, N.Y., with a defense department subcontractor, "Voltage" focuses on a group of workers and their bosses and examines their outside lives and loves.
