Jennifer Connelly and Greg Kinnear have joined Mandalay Vision’s comedy thriller Salvation Boulevard, which Myriad Pictures is selling overseas.

Previously announced Pierce Brosnan and Ed Harris are on board and Marisa Tomei is in final negotiations to round out the key cast.

George Ratliff will direct and adapted the screenplay from Wag The Dog author Larry Beinhart’s novel with Douglas Stone.

Salvation Boulevard tells of a born-again Christian on the run from fundamentalist members of his church who will stop at nothing to protect their larger-than-life pastor.

Cathy Schulman and Celine Rattray are producing. Myriad Pictures chief Kirk D’Amico is serving as executive producer and closed a number of pre-sales at the EFM in Berlin.
