Danny Glover and John C. McGinley are portraying priests, joining Wrenn Schmidt and Zachary Spicer in Paul Shoulberg’s indie romantic comedy “The Good Catholic.”

Spicer, John Armstrong and Graham Sheldon will produce for the New York-based Pigasus Pictures, alongside executive producer David Anspaugh, the director of “Rudy” and “Hoosiers.” Filming will begin in Bloomington, Ind., in late January.

Spicer will portray an idealistic young priest who loves his job more than anything, until he meets a women — played by Schmidt — in confession and seeks guidance from his fellow priests. Glover is slotted to play a conservative father while McGinley will play a free-spirited priest.

Glover will next be seen in the Sundance drama “Mr. Pig.” He also recently wrapped “Meyers Christmas” for Universal and “Monster Trucks” for Paramount.

McGinley just completed the horror-thriller “The Belko Experiment,” written, directed and produced by “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn for MGM.

Schmidt will next be seen opposite Tom Hiddleston in the Hank Williams biopic “I Saw the Light” and in Robert Kirkman’s new Cinemax series “Outcast.”

Spicer founded Pigasus Pictures last year the aim to produce quality story-driven films with a global appeal.

Glover and Schmidt are both represented by ICM. McGinley is represented by UTA. Spicer is repped by Stone Manners Salners.
