Patrick Swayze, Kris Kristofferson and Eddie Redmayne have joined Forest Whitaker, Jessica Biel and Ray Liotta in writer-director Timothy Linh Bui’s ensemble drama “Powder Blue” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows several Angelenos who meet on Christmas Eve through chance, tragedy and divine intervention. Swayze will play the sleazy owner of the strip club where Biel’s character performs. Redmayne will portray a mortician who falls in love with her.

Kristofferson will play the head of a corporate crime organization who tries to convince his former employee (Liotta) not to seek vengeance on his former co-workers.

Whitaker, who also serves as a producer on the film, will play a suicidal ex-priest. Newcomer Alejandro Romero will play a transsexual prostitute who shares an unexpected bond with the priest.
