Along with his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, the three embark on a journey to literally find God. He'll play the aforementioned Cassidy, "the most wild-ass, bestest 'bro' you'd ever want to meet. He may be 100 years dead but no one's more boisterously alive than Proinsias Cassidy." Ian Colletti also stars. (Deadline.com)
