Here's a bit of casting news on one of the busiest actor's around. Danny Glover is set to co-star in the upcoming interracial romantic drama Chasing Shakespeare. The indie film, which is being directed by Norry Niven, will be filmed in Texas.

According to THR, "the film is a love story between a young African-American man and a Native American girl with a passion for Shakespeare."

No word yet on casting for the lead characters but Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism) will co-star as a fellow actress who meets the girl at an audition for Hamlet and becomes her friend and roommate.
