Harvey Keitel is in final negotiations to join the cast of the Franc Reyes-directed crime thriller “The Ministers”.
Written by Reyes (“Empire”), the story follows a female NYPD detective (Florencia Lozano) whose father was murdered years ago by a group known as the Ministers.
She learns that the group has begun to kill again, and in her attempt to avenge her father, she unknowingly becomes romantically involved with a member of the group.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Leguizamo and Diane Venora are also in the cast. Keitel would play a good cop who has an unfortunate incident that changes the course of his life.
The less than $10 million budgeted film is currently shooting in New York.
