The Quarry: Michael Shannon and Shea Whigham Re-team for Scott Teems Production

According to Deadline, the latest joint venture between Michael Shannon and Shea Whigham, Scott Teems’ The Quarry, has started production in New Orleans, LA.

Per the report, the film follows a man (Whigham) who impersonates as a reverend in a small town after fleeing his sinful past. Naturally, his unorthodox sermons draw the suspicions of the local police chief (Shannon).
