Check out the official plot synopsis of The Forgiven, the upcoming drama thriller movie directed by Roland Joffé from a script he co-wrote with Michael Ashton and based on Ashton’s play “The Archbishop And The Antichrist”:
“The story takes place in post-apartheid South Africa. Archbishop Desmond Tutu (Forest Whitaker) finds himself morally and intellectually challenged by Piet Blomfield (Vince Vaughn), a convicted murderer serving a life sentence in prison and seeking redemption for the atrocities he committed. Tutu must fight to hold together a country threatening to tear itself apart once again without losing himself in the process.”
Forest Whitaker can definitely play an archbishop. But I find hard to imagine chubby and joyous Vince Vaughn as a murderer, that said, he could well surprise us.
No official release date yet.
Anyway, stay tuned with us for more details about the movie The Forgiven.
