Linda Cardellini (“ER,” “Scooby-Doo” movies) is set to star opposite Paul Walker in Heaven Project, an indie drama being directed by John Glenn, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows an ex-con who is sentenced to death and wakes up from his lethal injection in a small Oregon town. Working as a groundskeeper for a mental hospital, he is told he was given a second chance by God but questions whether he ever really died.
Cardellini will play the hospital’s administrator and Walker’s love interest.
Producing are David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville along with Inferno Entertainment’s Bill Johnson. Matt Milich also is producing.
Production is under way in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
