Leguizamo Prays For The Ministers
John's considering a crime thriller

10 October 2006  |  Written by   |  Source: Production Weekly

John Leguizamo is under holy orders from the man he worked with on Empire (no relation), director Franc. Reyes (his full-stop, not ours)  to star in his next film, The Ministers.

It might sound like a stuffy look behind the scenes at the Houses Of Parliament, but with a religious-themed crime thriller heart it shouldn’t bore you to death.

The twisty plot finds a New York homicide detective driven by the death of her father, who was slaughtered while on duty. The culprit was never found and the only evidence at the scene was a pamphlet for a mysterious religious order known only as – you guessed it - The Ministers.

Her father died 13 years ago and the group has been quiet for more than a decade, but she soon discovers that they’re back and in force. But because this is a conspiracy crime thriller, she’s swiftly removed from the case and ordered not to meddle. And here’s the extra turn of the knife- she’s involved with a man who’s secretly part of the group… We're guessing that Leguizamo is the love interest rather than the detective herself, but who knows? He did look fabulous in To Wong Foo.

The screaming and killing should start in December, when Reyes cranks his cameras in New York.
