Quartet added to ‘Mourning’

Independent satire fills out cast

Joseph Cross, Heather Graham, Barbara Hershey and Tim Curry will star in the indie satire “Son of Mourning.” Yaniv Raz will direct from a screenplay he wrote.

Story, set amid an international climate crisis, centers on a dissatisfied ad copywriter (Cross) who returns home to a resort town in Florida to mediate his parents’ divorce. While there, he is mistaken for the Messiah and must decide whether to use his newfound celebrity to indulge his own selfish desires or to do some good in the world.

Cross is producing “Mourning.” Moritz Borman (“World Trade Center”) is exec producing the film, slated to shoot early next year in Florida. Cross, whose credits include “Running With Scissors” and “Flags of Our Fathers,” will next star opposite Diane Lane in the thriller “Untraceable.”
