The screenplay for “God’s Pocket” is being adapted from a novel of the same name by Pete Dexter. The film will center around Mickey, who lives in God’s Pocket, which is a blue-collar neighborhood. Mickey’s stepson is killed during a not so accidental construction accident and Mickey has to cover it up. Meanwhile, he is also having problems with his wife and in serious debt.
“We are thrilled to have Philip Seymour Hoffman and this incredible cast onboard to help us bring John Slattery’s beautiful film to life,” said Sam Bisbee, who is producing the movie.
