Veteran actor Danny Glover has joined the cast of Francisco Ordonez’s film ‘Asher’. Described as an urban Da Vinci Code with elements of Donnie Brasco, ’Asher’ is the story of an ambitious New York City college student name Paul Rueda who infiltrates a militant religious ‘cult’ known as the Black Israelites!
Glover will play the powerful leader of the sect, who faces dissent within the ranks when a young member (played by Mehki Phifer, Torchwood) begins to break away from the organization for the purpose of what appears to be pulling off a terrorist operation.
“The Israelites” are known for their fiery sermons on the streets of New York.
‘Asher’ is scheduled to begin principal photography in Summer 2012. Produced by Sandra Varona and Carlito Rodriguez, ‘Asher’ will mark the feature directorial debut of award-winning filmmaker Francisco Ordonez. Currently the filmmakers are continuing to attach cast and explore financing options. http://www.asherthefilm.com/
