Upcoming Hollywood movie on Mother Teresa
February 10, 2014
Origin Entertainment will release a biographical film on Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (1910-97) in 2015, according to a recent Hollywood Reporter article.
The producer of the film, entitled I Thirst, is the former executive producer of the television series 24; the scriptwriter co-wrote the script for the 2004 film Hotel Rwanda.
The film’s producer, Tony Krantz, said that he would work in “lockstep with the Missionaries of Charity,” the religious institute Mother Teresa founded.
“They should not just be a part of it but also be one of the authors,” he said.
