Whitaker and Biel Join Powder Blue


Forest Whitaker and Jessica Biel have joined ensemble drama Powder Blue, set up by Eleven Eleven Films in association with Spirit Dance Entertainment and Grosvenor Park Media, reports Variety. Timothy Linh Bui directs.

Shooting is set to start in late July in L.A. The plot finds four eclectic characters — a mortician, an ex-con, a suicidal ex-priest and a stripper — brought together on Christmas Eve by a mixture of circumstances.

Timothy Linh Bui (Green Dragon) also wrote the script from a story by Stephane Gauger (Owl and the Sparrow). The producers are Whitaker, Bobby Schwartz, Ross M. Dinerstein, Tracee Stanley-Newell and Timothy Linh Bui.
