LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Tony-winning actress Kristin Chenoweth will play a suicidal prostitute in the independent film "Into Temptation."

In the drama by writer-director Patrick Coyle, Chenoweth stars opposite Jeremy Sisto. Her character confesses to a priest her plans to end her life on her birthday. The priest (Sisto) then searches for her, to intervene.

Coyle, a playright/actor-turned-filmmaker, penned the script, which won the McKnight Screenwriting Fellowship.

Chenoweth, who received a Tony for her lead performance in the 1999 revival of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," recently wrapped production on the New Line comedy "Four Christmases" and stars on ABC's "Pushing Daisies."

Sisto stars on "Law & Order" and voiced the character of Batman in "Justice League: The New Frontier." His most recent feature film was "Waitress," opposite Keri Russell.
