Yes I heard about probably a year back and have been looking forward to seeing it for some time. I think its finally being released this month or next.

  I'm still trying to figure out the religious background of the two main guys. I think one must be orthodox but the other im not sure.

I think one of them is Fr. John McGuckin, who is an Eastern Orthodox priest.  I think he is also a professor at a university and he has published books:

I'm not familiar with the other man.

Yes, I have hearing about this movie for quite a while. I hope it will be released soon.

This is from the news section of their website:

"Coming DECEMBER 15 - "Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer" has a pre-theatrical release from SnagFilms, beginning December 15, 2010, for three months. It's on COMCAST and VERIZON FIOS Video-On-Demand. Coming soon to theaters, then DVD's in early 2011."

I'll have to look for it on on-demand.
Let us the faithful now come together to praise our father, protector and teacher the pillar of the Orthodox faith and firm defender of piety even the wondrous hierarch Philaret and let us glorify our Saviour Who has granted us his incorrupt relics as a manifest sign of his sanctity.
