Just a quick casting update – Topher Grace
and Susan Sarandon
are set to star in the upcoming indie thriller titled The Calling
. The project comes from director Jason Stone
, and will also star Donald Sutherland
and Ellen Burstyn
. Pretty good cast for an indie, don’t you think
So, at this moment we know Stone will direct the movie from a script written by Scott Abramovitch
, and the whole thing is actually an adaptation of Inger Ash Wolfe
’s novel, which revolves around:
…a small town Canadian detective who investigates the murder of an elderly woman, which leads her to a serial killer driven by a higher calling.
According to the latest reports, Sarandon is on board to play that detective, while Grace will play an ambitious police officer who becomes her right-hand man.
As for the rest of the cast, we also have Gil Bellows
who is attached to star as a seasoned detective on Sarandon’s team, Donald Sutherland
will play a priest tapped to help the investigation, and Christopher Heyerdahl
is the killer, named Simon.
Christine Vachon, Killer Films and Randy Manis are producing The Calling
which began production last week, so I guess we’ll soon have more updates from the whole thing to share with you.
