Pierce Brosnan, Ed Harris And Jim Gaffigan Join A Mega-Church
Does anyone have a good explanation for why Pierce Brosnan seems to be everywhere right now? It's not like the erstwhile James Bond went anywhere, exactly-- he was getting steady work showing up in random indies like The Matador and Married Life-- but ever since he warbled his way through Mamma Mia! in 2008, it seems like you can't turn a corner without running into him.
Not that it's a bad thing-- I'm growing pretty fond of the guy myself. Now there will be yet another chance to catch Brosnan in Salvation Boulevard, an indie that Variety reports will star Brosnan, Ed Harris and Jim Gaffigan. They're not saying who is playing who, but one of them will be the pastor of a mega-church, with another as a former -deadhead-turned-born-again-Christian who finds himself on the run from the devoted followers.
The director is George Ratliff, who also helped adapt the screenplay from Larry Beinhart's book.Ratliff previously directed the creepy kid movie Joshua, which I have inexplicably seen despite the fact that it stars Sam Rockwell and Vera Farmiga. Ratliff's knack for working with fascinating actors, though, seems to be continuing with this new trio.
