Gina Gershon To Star in FIVE MINARETS IN NEW YORK
Actress Gina Gershon has signed on to star in the upcoming indie film “Five Minarets in New York.” Gershon will lead the cast of the film which marks Mahsun Kirmizigul’s English language debut as a writer-director.
The film follows the story of the wife of a Turkish scholar who is arrested after being wrongfully accused of a crime by federal authorities. Gershon will play the role of Maria, the scholar’s wife. In addition to Gershon, Danny Glover (“Death at a Funeral”) and Robert Patrick (“The Men Who Stare at Goats”) will also star in the film. Kirmizigul’s previous film, “I Saw the Sun,” was submitted to the Oscar’s last year as Turkey’s foreign language entry.
Gershon can be seen currently in the brothel drama film “Love Ranch.” The film tells the real life story of a couple who opened and managed Nevada’s first legal brothel.
