Connery Film Helps Rebuild New Orleans
Actor Jason Connery's hard-hitting new movie is to be filmed among the derelict houses Hurricane Katrina destroyed in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The British actor and Monster star Pruitt Taylor Vince will star in Glass Houses when it goes before cameras next March (09).
The film, which marks Mark Bernier's directorial debut, is a crime drama, which pits a detective against a paedophile ex-priest as he investigates the rape and murder of a transgender teen.
Damaged structures used in the movie will be reconstructed or renovated during filming at the production company's expense.
Additionally, the filmmakers are earmarking a portion of the picture's distribution proceeds for local reconstruction and mental health services for hurricane victims.
