Whitaker & Biel Feeling Blue

Forest Whitaker and Jessica Biel will team for the inspirational drama “Powder Blue” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows a suicidal ex-priest (Whitaker), a stripper (Biel) with a terminally ill son, an elderly ex-con seeking to reunite with his daughter and a lovelorn mortician whose lives intersect in Los Angeles on Christmas Eve.

Timothy Linh Bui (“Green Dragon”) wrote and directs the film which begins shooting on location in July.
