New projects for Ryan Kennedy, John Pyper-Ferguson and James Marsters

Final round of updates for today.

Ryan Kennedy and John Pyper-Ferguson have a new film in the works, called Hannah's Law. It will premiere on Hallmark next spring. More details in the press release:
A frontier town is fueled by crime and corruption until a strong-willed heroine and her friends, including legendary lawman Wyatt Earp and gunfighter Doc Holliday, take a stand for justice to see who will be left standing in "Hannah's Law," a Hallmark Movie Channel Original produced by Nomadic Pictures Productions 3 and Sony Pictures Television, premiering on the network in 2012. The film, which is currently in production in Calgary, Alberta, stars Sara Canning ("The Vampire Diaries") as Hannah, Greystone Holt ("Durham County") as Wyatt Earp, Kimberly Elise ("For Colored Girls") as Stagecoach Mary, four-time Emmy(R) Award nominee Danny Glover ("Freedom Song," "Mandela") as Isom Dart, Billy Zane ("Titanic") as Lockwood, Ryan Kennedy ("Hellcats") as Doc Holliday and John Pyper-Ferguson ("Caprica") plays Frank McMurphy.

From orphan to bounty hunter, tough-minded Hannah Beaumont doesn't take lip from anyone. Only in her mid-twenties, Hannah is driven by a soul-consuming mission to track down and bring to justice the McMurphy gang who brutally murdered her parents and young brother. Comfortable as a mercenary, Hannah's fierce independence keeps the people in her life at a distance: Isom Dart, the father figure who taught Hannah everything he knows about shooting and hunting men, handsome admirer and suitor Wyatt Earp, mysterious Doc Holliday and Hannah's best friend Stagecoach Mary. But when Hannah and her friends prove to the McMurphy gang that getting into Dodge is easy, but getting out will be hell, a shocking secret is revealed that will change Hannah's life forever.

"Hannah's Law" is produced by Nomadic Pictures Productions 3 and Sony Pictures Television. Mike Ogiens and John Fasano are the executive producers. Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev are the producers. Rachel Talalay is directing from a script written by John Fasano.
James Marsters also has a new project lined up, a sci-fi adventure series Metal Hurlant Chronicles, which will air next year. James will make an appearance in the episode "Shelter Me." From the press release:
WE Productions, Humanoids and Panini U.K. Media have unveiled the star talent on board for the sci-fi adventure Metal Hurlant Chronicles, among them Rutger Hauer.

Hauer (Blade Runner, Sin City, Hitcher) joins Scott Adkins (The Expendables 2, The Bourne Supremacy, X-men Origins), Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite, Blood and Bones, Spawn), Joe Flanigan (Stargate Atlantis, Warehouse 13, CSI) and James Marsters (Buffy, Angel, Smallville, Torchwood). Further cast announcements will be made at the end of the year.

Metal Hurlant Chronicles is an adaptation of the science-fiction comic books of the same name. The TV treatment for the sci-fi/action graphic novels is led by Guillaume Lubrano and produced by France's WE Productions and Humanoids with Pierre Spengler (Superman) and Fabrice Giger. Worldwide distribution is held by Panini U.K. Media. The first two seasons, each 12x30 minutes, will be delivered in April 2012 and November 2012, respectively.
