Gershon Up For Five Minarets In New York
An indie drama with Robert Patrick

Gina Gershon, Robert Patrick and Danny Glover are all signing on to lead the cast of indie drama Five Minarets In New York.

It’s not a mis-spelling, and not a rom-com: Five Minarets is the English-language debut of Turkish writer/director Mahsun Kirmizigul, who scored acclaim for his film I SawThe Sun, which served as Turkey’s Oscar submission last year.

Gershon has nabbed the role of Maria, a woman married to a Turkish scholar who is arrested by US government agents (We’re guessing this is where at least Patrick and possibly also Glover factor into the plot) when she’s wrongfully accused of a crime.

There’s no word on when the movie will kick off shooting, but given that title, we expect it’ll film around the Big Apple shortly.
