Ed Harris, Pierce Brosnan and Jim Gaffigan going to Salvation Boulevard
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Ed Harris, Pierce Brosnan and comedian Jim Gaffigan have agreed to star in the upcoming film SALVATION BOULEVARD. The movie follows a former-hippie-turned-Christian on the run from members of a mega-church that are desperate to protect their superstar pastor. George Ratliff will direct the film that’s based off the book by Larry Beinhart, who also wrote ‘Wag the Dog’.
That synopsis has political potholes written all over it. Religion can be a funny thing, but doing it in a manner that’s not offensive is incredibly difficult. I’m assuming Brosnan will play the pastor and Gaffigan will play the hippie. I like Gaffigan’s standup, but he has yet to be able to capture that comedy on film.
