Actors Michael C Hall and Grace Caroline Currey have joined Vera Farmiga, Tim Blake Nelson and Simon Rex in the cast of the upcoming true-crime biopic, The Leader.

Written and directed by Michael Gallagher, the film is based on the 1997 Heaven’s Gate mass suicide. “The Leader will chart the memorable true story of the 39 members of the UFO cult known as Heaven’s Gate who committed the largest mass suicide ever on American soil.

“The film tracks Nettles (Farmiga) and Applewhite (Nelson) as they develop the religion, build a devout following and face unforeseen conflict when the spaceship fails to arrive,” reads the description reported by Deadline.

Produced by Cinemand Films and Balcony 9 Productions, The Leader secured an interim agreement with SAG-AFTRA. Jana Gallagher, Michael Wormser and Michael Gallagher are producing for Cinemaland. Joel David Moore produces under the Balcony 9 banner.
