Paul Shoulberg will direct the film from his own script. The movie will be produced by Spicer and John Robert Armstrong for their Indiana-based company Pigasus Pictures. Shooting begins Oct. 27 in Bloomington, Ind.
Ortiz and Colindrez portray a father-daughter team who operate Cordova Mortality Solutions, counseling terminally ill clients, while Light plays a sharp-tongued free spirit who has no time for her own mortality. Spicer is a psychic medium and Meyer portrays a woman dying of a terminal blood disease.
“Ms. White Light” is the first in Pigasus Pictures’ slate of six films to be produced locally in Indiana over the next three years. Spicer and Armstrong previously teamed with Shoulberg to produce “The Good Catholic,” starring John McGinley and Danny Glover.
Light stars on “Transparent” and was nominated for a supporting actress Emmy this year for her role as the ex-wife of Jeffrey Tambor’s character. She won Tony Awards for her work on “The Assembled Parties” and “Other Desert Cities.” Colindrez stars in the series “I Love Dick” and Ortiz appeared in “Kong: Skull Island.”
