Bana Joins Whitaker In “The Forgiven”

Eric Bana has just signed on to join the cast of “The Forgiven” based on Michael Ashton’s play “The Archbishop And The Antichrist” for Link Entertainment and Light & Dark Films.

Forest Whitaker will play Archbishop Desmond Tutu in the film which follows his work as president of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in post-apartheid South Africa and his struggle with brutal murderer Piet Blomfeld (Bana) over concession and redemption.

Roland Joffe is directing from a script he co-wrote with Ashton. Joffe, Craig Baumgarten and Zaheer Goodman-Bhyat are producing.
