Queen Latifah has signed on to star opposite Jennifer Garner in Sony’s faith-based drama Miracles From Heaven.
The actress joins Garner, who already had boarded the project, in the Patricia Riggen-helmed film, which is based on Christy Beam’s book of the same name that recounts how her young daughter miraculously overcame an incurable, life-threatening digestive disorder.
Adapted by Randy Brown (Trouble with the Curve) the story centers on Beam (Garner) and a series of miracles that unfolded, leaving her family, her daughter’s doctors and the community baffled. Latifah will play a Boston waitress — something of an earthly angel — who befriends the sick girl and Beam during their visits to Boston Children’s Hospital. She steps up to provide comfort and a helping hand when they need it most, and her life ends up transformed by her interaction with the family.
