Jeffrey Wright is in talks to play Carlton Pearson and Robert Redford is "in discussions" to star as Oral Roberts in the Jonathan Demme-helmed true story drama "Come Sunday" for Endgame Entertainment.
Formerly titled "Heretics" when it was setup with Marc Forster as helmer, the film chronicles Pearson, a renowned Oklahamoa evangelical minister who stirs up controversy with his revelation that there is no hell.
He loses everything and must rebuild his church and his family and find his own personal faith. Roberts, an early pioneer of TV evangelism, served as Pearson's mentor.
Filming aims to begin in Spring 2015.
