Zachary Quinto has signed on for a role in Michael, the story of an “ex-gay activist.”
Michael portrays the life of Michael Glatze, who renounced his homosexuality later in life and married a woman.
The lead role will be played by James Franco, with Quinto playing his ex-boyfriend. Emma Roberts plays Michael’s love interest.
““This isn’t just a story about an ‘ex-gay,’ said Director Justin Kelly. “It’s actually a very relatable story about the power of belief and the desire to belong.”
“I’m excited that everyone involved in this project is intent on telling a story that captures the full breadth of Michael’s unusual life, from the inspiring gay leader I knew when I was young to the Christian pastor he is today,” said Benoit Denizet-Lewis, who wrote “My Ex-Gay Friend,” an article about Glatze.
