Forest Whitaker Lands New Movie Role

Forest Whitaker’s next movie will be a post-Apartheid drama titled, The Archbishop and the Antichrist.

The flick is based on the play of the same name, and re-imagines Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s meetings with Piet Blomfield, an imprisoned murderer seeking redemption.

While actor Vince Vaughn will portray Blomfield, the Broadway star will play Tutu.

“Forest Whitaker brings a great sense of depth and power to all his performances and he is the perfect match for Tutu’s complex character,” said Tannaz Anisi, president of 13 Films.

Production is set to begin early next year. Stay tuned for more details.
