Kelsey Grammer and Julia Stiles have been set to star in “The Runner” director Austin Stark’s medical thriller “The God Committee” for Paper Street Films, Phiphen Pictures and Crystal City Entertainment.
The story tackles the U.S. organ transplant system as seen through the eyes of those personally involved and affected by it.
The story moves between two timelines: In one, a donor heart is being flown to a New York hospital and a transplant committee has an hour to decide which patient deserves the life-saving organ.
The other, which takes place six years later, explores the impact of that one decision. Colman Domingo, Janeane Garofalo and Dan Hedaya co-star in the project which is currently shooting in New York City.
Stark also wrote the script. Molly Conners, Amanda Bowers, Vincent Morano and Jane Oster are producing.
