Chris O’Dowd’s career continues to flourish with the news that he’s in talks to join Ted Melfi’s movie St. Vincent De Van Nuys, according to Deadline, which would see him star alongside Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy.
The film is about a hard-working single mother (McCarthy) who hands her child over to a cantankerous old man (Murray) to watch over him while she tries to make ends meet with her various jobs. O’Dowd will play the local parish priest, who counsels the old man. He’d sympathetic to the situation, but shocked at all of the horrible habits and lessons Murray’s character chooses to pass down to the impressionable 12-year-old kid.
Shooting on the indie movie is set to star this July.
