Guardian looks at Legion series & news for feature film Marshall
The Guardian has posted an article about Dan's role in Legion.
Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens will star as David Haller, who in the comics is son to X-Men founder Charles Xavier (played by James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart in the film franchise). The show finds Haller struggling after being diagnosed as schizophrenic. A strange encounter with a fellow patient leads him to believe that the visions he sees might indeed be real. Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza will also feature, while Fargo actors Jean Smart and Rachel Keller round out the cast.
Open Road Films has acquired all U.S. rights to “Marshall,” starring Chadwick Boseman as Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and Josh Gad as lawyer Sam Friedman.
Joining the previously announced cast are Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell, Sterling K. Brown and Keesha Sharp (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”).
Reginald Hudlin (producer of “Django Unchained”) is directing and Paula Wagner (“Mission: Impossible,” “The Last Samurai”) is producing through her Chestnut Ridge Productions banner along with Jonathan Sanger (“The Elephant Man”) and Hudlin.
