Fivesome Will be Saving Grace

ON

Penelope Ann Miller, Tatum O’Neal, Joel Gretsch, Piper Laurie and Michael Biehn will star in the period drama Saving Grace for veteran performer and first-time feature writer-director Connie Stevens, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Miller and Biehn will play Bea and Landy Bretthorse, a couple whose life in a 1950s-era Missouri town is thrown into chaos when Landy’s sister Grace (O’Neal) is released from the local asylum and comes to live with the family. Gretsch will play Grace’s ex-husband, who was married to her for one day, and Laurie will play the administrator who runs the asylum where Grace stayed for 15 years.

The story is personal for singer-actress Stevens, who is producing the project with Ralph Singleton (Because of Winn Dixie) for Saving Grace B Jones. She was visiting relatives in Boonville, Mo., in 1951 during severe floods that play a pivotal role in her screenplay. Her film is now being shot on location there.
