Forest Whitaker in talks to direct, star in The Shack

Yesterday brought us the first clip from the Left Behind reboot and the news that the Academy had rescinded the Oscar nomination for Alone Yet Not Alone. Today brings news of a not-so-conservative Christian-themed movie.

Deadline reports that Forest Whitaker, most recently seen in Black Nativity, is in talks to direct and star in a film adaptation of The Shack, the William P.

The film is being produced by Gil Netter, whose credits include Flicka (2006), The Blind Side (2009) and Life of Pi (2012); and it is written by John Fusco, whose credits include Youngs Guns (1988-1990), Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002) and Hidalgo (2004).
