*James Earl Jones has been cast in the independent romantic drama “Atlas of the Soul,” reports Variety.
Jones will play a mailman delivering packages containing rocks with the names of far-away cities to a recluse, played by Powers, living alone in a secluded Victorian house worn down by time. The packages are sent from his former lover (Lauren Fox), who has been driving cross country and living out of her van.
Andy Powers, Connor Paolo and Emily Bergl co-star in the film, which launched a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year, raising more than $28,000 to help cover production costs.
Veteran indie filmmaker Jeremiah Kipp (“Edward Albee: A Transformative Moment”) will direct the film from a script penned by Fox. Lauren Rayner (“Sugar”) is the lead producer.
Production is slated for November in Vermont.
