Well, here's a name we don't hear very often. Variety reports that Jim Caviezel and Chiwetel Ejiofor are set to star in a historical drama, "Savannah."

Written and directed by Annette Haywood-Carter (best known for directing an adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates' "Foxfire" starring Angelina Jolie), the film tells the true story of "early 1900s aristocrat Ward Allen (Caviezel) who develops an unexpected partnership with freed slave Christmas Moultrie, played by Ejiofor." And pic has an interesting and somewhat random supporting cast lined up including hey-it's-that-guy actor Bradley Whitford, Jaimie Alexander ("Thor"), Jack McBrayer ("30 Rock") and Hal Holbrook ("Into The Wild"). We're mildly curious but considering that everything Caviezel has done since "The Passion Of The Christ" has come and gone with barely any notice, we're not holding our breath; Ejiofor is the only person piquing our interest in this thing right now.

The film will go in front of cameras on Valentine's Day in, where else, Savannah, Georgia.
