David Harewood and Edwina Findley have signed up to star in the indie drama titled Free In Deed, from writer/director Jake Mahaffy, which is based on a true story.


In the film, Harewood will play a man who brings a small congregation together in order to perform the miraculous healing of an 8-year-old autistic child. 

Findley will play the boy’s mother.

Production is set to begin this month in Memphis, TN, with Mike S. Ryan’s Greyshack Films, and Brent Stiefel’s Votiv producing with Michael Bowes.

Harewood will also star in Four Stars International's Paul Robeson biopic, which Vondie Curtis-Hall will direct, replacing South African director Darrell Roodt (Winnie). He's likely best known for his performance as David Estes, the Director of the Counterterrorism Center for the CIA, in Showtime's Homeland.

Meanwhile, Findley is attached to Jason Gilmore's forthcoming feature film, All The Children Are Insane - a Juntobox Films finalist (the a new initiative co-founded by Forest Whitaker, that gives independent filmmakers the opportunity for their films to be financed, produced and distributed, with support and mentorship from industry professionals, including Forest Whitaker). We last saw her on the big screen in Insidious: Chapter 2 and Ava DuVernay's Middle Of Nowhere.
