Forest Whitaker is set to play Archbishop Desmond Tutu in Roland Joffe's South African prison movie at Lightmotive which currently has the working title of "The Archbishop And The Antichrist" says Screen Daily.
Based on the play by Michael Ashton, the story imagines a meeting between the real Tutu and a boorish white South African mass murderer called Piet Blomfeld.
Joffe ("The Mission," "The Killing Fields") has adapted the play himself. The helmer is currently in post-production on his $30+ million part colonial India-set "Singularity" and is also prepping the thriller "In God We Trust". »
