Forest Whitaker plays Archbishop Desmond Tutu in Saban Films’ upcoming film The Forgiven.

Directed by Roland Joffe, the film revolves around Tutu being appointed to head a nationwide investigation, which results in his being summoned to a maximum-security prison by a notorious murderer seeking clemency (Eric Bana). Inside the brutal prison walls, Tutu is drawn into a dangerous, life-changing battle with the cunning criminal.

The film was produced by Joffe, Craig Baumgarten, and Zaheer Goodman-Bhyat with financing by The Fyzz Facility.

Saban Films has set a release date of March 9 in theaters before expanding its theatrical output on March 16 alongside a VOD and Digital HD release.
