Common, Mykelti Williamson and Leem Lubany have joined the cast of Michelle Monaghan’s upcoming indie drama, SAINT JUDY.

Currently in production in Los Angeles, the trio joins the previously announced Michelle Monaghan, Alfred Molina, Alfre Woodard, Gabriel Bateman, Ben Schnetzer, Waleed Zuaiter, Kevin Chapman, Aimee Garcia and Peter Krause.

Saint Judy centers on the story of Judy Wood, a single mother in her mid 30s who began work in immigration law and represented an Afghani immigrant who had been persecuted for opening up a school for girls in her home country. By winning the case, Wood single-handedly changed the law of asylum nationwide, allowing women to be designated a protected class.

Sean Hanish directs from an original script by Dmitry Portnoy. Cannonball Productions produces. Paul Jaconi-Biery and Hanish produce with Kelley Kahl, Molina, Gabriela Lugo and Jaime Surenkamp executive producing. Derek Beamer co-produces.
