If you're a fan of Peter Dinklage or Charlotte Hope, from "Game of Thrones", or Richard Gere, you might be interested in their new film. "Three Christs of Ypsilanti" will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next week. The movie, described as a "dark comedy", is based on the true story of a doctor at Ypsilanti State Hospital in the 60s, who worked with three schizophrenic patients, who each believed they were Jesus Christ. According to MLive.com, the movie was co-written and directed by Jon Avnet, who directed "Fried Green Tomatoes". So, we're talking about some major Hollywood star power in this movie.

The movie was filmed in Staten island, New York, which, of course, is Ypsilanti's double. (I think they just needed an old hospital)

There's no public release date yet.

Here's the story.
