Indie screenwriter and director John Sayles (Passion Fish) has reportedly tapped Edward James Olmos in his upcoming feature Go for Sisters.
This is the director's 18th feature film. Others cast include LisaGay Hamilton, Yolonda Ross, Hector Elizondo, and Isaiah Washington.
According to information posted at Mr. Sayles' blog, "the plot concerns two friends, Bernice and Fontayne, who grow up so close they ‘go for sisters’, but then lose track of each other for twenty years. They are reunited when Bernice is assigned as the parole officer for Fontayne, who is fresh out of prison and fighting heroin addiction. But Bernice has an even more threatening problem."
Production on the project is expected to begin in mid-July.
