Legendary thesp Brian Dennehy will direct the fact-based drama “Redemption” for Habourton Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story follows Joyce Ann Brown, who spent more than nine years in prison for a 1980 fur store robbery and murder in Dallas that she didn’t commit.
It also follows Jim McCloskey, a crusader for the wrongly convicted, who fought for her release.
Dennehy wrote the screenplay with Joe Seldner. McCloskey, Seldner and James Regan will produce. Shooting kicks off this Spring.
