Connelly, Kinnear, Tomei Seek “Salvation”

Jennifer Connelly, Greg Kinnear and Marisa Tomei all teaming for George Ratliff’s comedy thriller “Salvation Boulevard” at Mandalay Vision reports Variety.

Based on the novel by Larry Beinhart, the story follows a “deadhead turned born-again Christian” who soon is on the lam when who finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega-church who will do anything to protect their larger-than-life pastor.

Pierce Brosnan, Jim Gaffigan and Ed Harris have already been cast in the project. Ratliff helms from a screenplay he co-wrote with Douglas Stone.

Shooting kicks off in April.
