Legion: lead role in new Marvel TV series on FX

News of Dan's new lead role as David Heller in Legion, Marvel's superhero TV series for FX has been announced. Deadline has the details.

Legion introduces the story of David Haller (Stevens), based on the Marvel comics character Legion, the son of X-Men founder Charles Xavier. Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, he has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. A haunted man, David is getting tired of finding his way back to sanity and is about to give up when he meets the girl of his dreams, a fellow patient. After the strange encounter, he’s confronted with the possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees might be real.

According to Collider, production on the pilot begins in March, after which FX will decide whether they’ll order the show to series.

The photo of Dan recently in Milan has been shared by Just Jared.

Hurrah! Dan is a Marvel Hero!

So very excited about this! Legion sounds like a complex character, and Dan will be marvelous in this role!

Good news!

So pleased to see this.....more interesting challenges for Dan.......

superhero!

Hope goes to series and available in UK. Could be good.

film release

Does anyone know what has happened to Criminal Activities? Has it gone straight to dvd and not been released in cinemas in UK?

Criminal Activities

Apparently only very limited cinema release in USA & none in UK. The DVD should be available in UK on March 7th.
Sadly it seems that many films now are only available by VOD or DVD, cinema/theatre distribution costs being so very costly.

The Ticket

What happened to this? Glad to see other people asking about films and why no news about them.

Re The Ticket

Still not yet released in USA or UK but I understand that this is not uncommon - some films taking a year or more to actually become available. It's so frustrating knowing that there is unseen work waiting in the wings!

Thanks

Thanks for onfo. Hope we don,t have to wait too long to see films. Miss seeing Dan on tv.

Empire

Comment in Empire re. actors whose careers have fizzled after leaving hit series and going Holywood. Dan mentioned. Bit unfair if films are being held in limbo and not released after build up!
