Whitaker as suicidal priest and Biel as stripper
Forest Whitaker is joining Jessica Biel in in an inspirational drama called Powder Blue.
The film sees Whitaker as a suicidal ex-priest, Biel as a stripper with a terminally ill son, a third lead of an ex-con who wants to reunite with his lost daughter, and a fourth lead of a mortician in love and how their lives intersect in LA on Xmas eve one year.
It's another of the spate of ensemble films where all the characters are brought together by events outside their control, and like most of them this one seems to be lining up a strong and interesting cast, Jessica Biel and Whitaker?
How do you feel about all these ensemble films? Are they just copying the success of such things as Crash (Filmstalker review)?
