Jennifer Connelly, Greg Kinnear and Marisa Tomei seek Salvation Boulevard
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly and Marisa Tomei have signed on for the comedy-thriller SALVATION BOULEVARD for director George Ratliff. They join a cast that already includes Pierce Brosnan, Ed Harris and Jim Gaffigan. The film is about a former hippie that goes on the run from members of a mega-church that are set on protecting their pastor.
The cast is now pretty incredible, but I’m still not sure how they’re going to make this film work. On one hand, I think it will be funny to dive into the world of mega-churches and the fundamentalists that make them up, but on the other hand, it gets risky whenever you start making fun of religion. We also don’t know for sure which actor is playing which character, but I have to assume Gaffigan is the former hippie.
