Kristin Chenoweth (“Pushing Daisies”) has signed on to star opposite Jeremy Sisto in the independent drama Into Temptation for writer/director Patrick Coyle, says The Hollywood Reporter.
Chenoweth will play a suicidal prostitute who confesses to a priest her plans to end her life on her birthday. The priest (Sisto) then searches for her to intervene.
Coyle, a playright/actor-turned-filmmaker, wrote the script, which won the McKnight Screenwriting Fellowship.
Shooting begins next week in Minneapolis.
