Toni Collette and Michael Sheen lead Jesus Henry Christ

Toni Collette and Michael Sheen will lead the cast of comedy Jesus Henry Christ.

Produced by Julia Robert’s, the film centres on an artificially conceived boy, Henry James Hermin, who is raised by a left-wing feminist. Henry discovers a trail of post-it notes around town that he hopes will lead him to his biological father.

Sheen has been cast as a professor and author, while Collette will play Henry’s adopted mother.

The film is based on writer-director Dennis Lee’s 2003 short film.
