ON

Harvey Keitel is in final talks to join the cast of The Ministers, a crime thriller being directed by filmmaker Franc. Reyes, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Written by Reyes, the story follows a female NYPD detective whose father was murdered years ago by a group known as the Ministers. She learns that the group has begun to kill again, and in her attempt to avenge her father, she unknowingly becomes romantically involved with a member of the group.

Newcomer Florencia Lozano is the detective. John Leguizamo, who starred in Reyes’ 2002 hit actioner Empire, and Diane Venora also are in the cast.

Keitel would play a good cop who has an unfortunate incident that changes the course of his life.

Shooting is under way in New York.
