Stewart plays ‘Dad’

Patrick Stewart, widely known as Capt. Jean-Luc Picard in the TV series “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” has confirmed to star in “Dad Savage” for Polygram Film Intl. (Daily Variety, Jan. 23).

In “Dad Savage” Stewart will portray the title character, a criminal who has stashed away all the ill-gotten earnings from his 30-year career. When his two new recruits discover and steal his stash, it sets them at dangerous odds with Savage.

The Sweet Child Films thriller is to be helmed by Betsan Morris-Evans and will be produced by Gwynneth Lloyd and Robert Jones.

Stewart has been on a trek of feature roles as of late. In October he inked a deal to star in “Moby Dick,” a four-hour miniseries produced by Hallmark Entertainment for the USA Network.

He most recently was seen onscreen in “Star Trek: First Contact,” and just completed filming his turn as a villain alongside Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts in the Richard Donner-helmed “The Conspiracy Theory.”

“Dad Savage” is scheduled to begin principal photography Feb. 24 on location in Lincolnshire and at Twickenham Studios in the U.K.

Polygram Filmed Entertainment will distribute “Dad Savage” in North America, the U.K., France, Benelux, Spain, Germany and Australia, with Polygram Film Intl. licensing in all other territories.
