Joe Anderson, who was just cast in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2, has signed to star with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Meg Ryan, and Kat Dennings in Lives of the Saints. The drama will be directed by Chris Rossi and is produced and financed by Claude Dal Farra. The film is about a group of Los Angeles residents, all wrestling with troubled pasts, who cross paths on a road they hope will lead to redemption. Anderson, who plays a drifter trying to maintain a quick wit despite his diminishing circumstances, recently starred in The Crazies and Across The Universe.
