Marie to star in ‘Marshal’

Thesp cast opposite Glenn

Thesp Constance Marie (“Selena”) has landed the lead female role opposite Scott Glenn in the indie actioner “The Last Marshal.”

Marie will play a deputy marshal who tangles with Glenn’s character in his one-man crusade to bring down an illegal drug syndicate that has its hooks into the U.S. court system.

“Marshal” is being produced by Newman/Tooley Films, and is set to start production in Florida this month.

Mike Kirton, who has worked as an assistant director for action films, makes his helming debut. Kirton wrote the screenplay with Scott Wiper.

Vincent Newman and Tucker Tooley will produce with Joseph Nittolo. Justin Urbas and Russell Gray will serve as exec producers.

Big Picture Entertainment Group, a private equity and distribution concern, will underwrite “Marshal” and handle foreign distribution.

“Marshal” is the first of a two-film deal between Newman/Tooley and Big Picture. Another feature, “Beyond City Limits,” starts lensing in January from a script by John McMahon.

Marie’s other acting credits include the feature “Mi Familia” and the short-lived NBC series “Union Square.” Her “Marshal” deal was brokered by Robbie Kass and Stephanie Johnson of Innovative Artists.
