Christopher Plummer has signed up to play US Catholic Church head CARDINAL BERNARD LAW, who was forced to resign after failing to stop evidence of child abuse by clergy in his diocese, in new TV movie, OUR FATHERS.

The film also stars Ted Danson, Ellen Burstyn and Brian Dennehy.

Some of the victims of the abuse, who shared a $10 million (GBP5.26 million) settlement, were hired as consultants on the set of the film, which airs in America next month (MAY05).
