Even though he’s currently deep in post-production with his latest film, the rom-com Baggage Claim, with Paula Patton, Djimon Hounsou, Taye Diggs and Derek Luke, writer/director David Talbert (First Sunday) already has his next film project all set.
Talbert will write and direct the feature film Preacher’s Son for the L.A. based, newly created, independent film and television production company Ironic Prods.
The story deals with a young man, who, due to certain circumstances, is forced to steal $200,000 from his father’s church. He then, in turn, sets out on a series of bank robberies to get back the money before anyone at the church notices. Of course complications ensue, as they must.
The film, which is reported to have a budget of $12 million, is scheduled to start shooting during the summer of 2013 in Los Angeles and Atlanta.
No word on casting yet, but stay tuned.
