Dennis Quaid, Tyrese Gibson, Jon Tenney, Charles S. Dutton, Lucas Black, Kate Walsh, Adrianne Palicki, Kevin Durand and Willa Holland will join Paul Bettany in “Legion,” the Screen Gems thriller that marks the feature directing debut of Scott Stewart.
Shooting is about to get under way in New Mexico. David Lancaster and Michel Litvak produce through their Bold Films banner, and Gary Michel Walters is exec producer.
Scripted by Stewart and Peter Schink, the thriller casts Bettany as the archangel Michael, the only one standing between mankind and an apocalypse, after God loses faith in humanity. Man’s lone hope rests with a group of strangers who must deliver a baby they realize is Christ in his second coming.
Deals for Quaid, Gibson and Tenney are being finalized and the rest of the cast is set.
