The Making of Jesus Diabetes: Bob Odenkirk Set to Return to the Big Screen in Comedy Film
Better Call Saul‘s Bob Odenkirk has been cast to star and co-write the big screen comedy film The Making of Jesus Diabetes. Odenkirk will reunite with Better Call Saul co-stars Andrew Friedman and Michael Naughton who are set to have supporting roles in the upcoming film. Friedman and Naughton will also be co-writing the script alongside Odenkirk.
The film will follow two brothers who recently lost their mother and without any prior filmmaking experience pursue the task of creating a film about diabetes set during the time of Jesus in a bid to honor their late mother. What the brothers are unaware of is that their neighbor has been documenting their journey.
The film was inspired by sketch characters created by Naughton and Friedman and the report states that Odenkirk will play the role of Leo who is a “shifty man with a dark past.” Heath Cullens is attached to helm the film with Michael Day, Andrew DeCesare, Naomi Odenkirk, and Bryan DeGuire producing the film.
Odenkirk is just coming off an epic series finale for the Breaking Bad spinoff series Better Call Saul which was met with critical acclaim and also from fans who applauded Odenkirk on his performance of the character that quickly became a fan favorite when being introduced in the Vince Gilligan‘s Breaking Bad.
The Making of Jesus Diabetes does not currently have a release or production start date. Stay tuned as more information is revealed.
