Josh Lucas to star in ‘God’s Spy’

Morahan to direct thriller

Josh Lucas will star in “God’s Spy,” a U.K.-Canadian thriller to be directed by Andy Morahan. Brian Phelan script is based on the events that culminated in the discovery of Italian banker Roberto Calvi hanging under London’s Blackfriars Bridge in 1982.

The $15 million pic, which shoots next year in Montreal, will also feature Jordi Molla, Giancarlo Giannini and Peter O’Toole.

Lovett Bickford of Cardinal Pictures is producing the pic; Kim Leggatt of Local Films exec produces. CAA is handling U.S. rights.

Story follows a young Wall Street trader, played by Lucas, who is really a Jesuit priest working undercover to gain experience of the financial markets. He becomes caught up in a shady political and financial conspiracy involving the Vatican Bank, the CIA, the Mafia and Masonic Lodge P2.
