Hollywood star Forest Whitaker will play Archbishop Desmond Tutu in an upcoming film, entitled The Archbishop And The Antichrist.

The movie will be directed by Roland Joffé and will also star Vince Vaughn, who will play serial killer Piet Blomfield.

The film follows Tutu's time as the head of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, as well as his engagements with Blomfield.

"Forest Whitaker brings a great sense of depth and power to all his performances and he is the perfect match for Tutu’s complex character," Tannaz Anisi, president of production company 13 Films, said, according to The Guardian.

"Vince Vaughn continues to prove his wide-ranging acting skills following his more dramatic roles in Into the Wild and the upcoming Hacksaw Ridge. Under the direction of Roland Joffé, their combined star power and talent is undeniable."

There is currently no release date set for the movie, but by all accounts, it is going to be a cracker.
