Affleck, Mara, Foster Seek “Saints”

Rooney Mara, Ben Foster and Casey Affleck are attached to star in the feature “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” reports Deadline.

David Lowery has written and will direct this expansion of his own award-winning 16-minute short “Pioneer” which screened at Sundance and SXSW last year.

That short starred Will Oldham as a father who tells his little boy the most epic bedtime story ever. James Johnson, Toby Halbrooks, Amy Kaufman, Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy are producing.
