John Fallon Announces Period Actioner And 'Passion Project', HERETIC

The Shelter helmer, writer and director John Fallon is poised to head out to Spain in due time for the forthcoming production of period action adventure drama, Heretic. Actors Paul Sloan (The Vigilante Diaries, I Am Wrath) and Mark Lawson (One Life to Live) are officially tapped to star in the film with a script by Fallon and co-scribe, writer Karim Cheriguene, and Michael Nouryeh (Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Drive) on board as editor.
1149. William and Roland, two Templars, are on their way back home after losing the second Crusade. Both men are dealing with the weight of the war and of having failed God quite differently. Roland is repentant, attempting to correct his wrongs via good deeds and kindness, while William justifies his harshness by claiming that every hardship is a test and part of “God’s will”. As if the increasing divide between the two men wasn’t enough, they also have to face a slew of deadly obstacles on their journey through a civil war torn England while being chased by a mysterious assassin with an agenda of his own. The sudden presence of Anna, a bewitching woman, on their path eventually brings the palpable tension to a boil.
Amid the impending festivities at Fantasia this week, Heretic is just one of the titles Fallon will be presenting via his Bruise Productions Inc. banner at the Frontières Market in Montreal, Canada. Fallon unveiled a first look sales poster via his official website to showcase what folks at Frontières can expect as he sets out for funding via private investment, pre-sales or another willing producing entity.
"The script hits a myriad of notes in one sitting." says Fallon. "It’s an action/adventure, a potent drama, an exploration of faith/fanaticism and a mystery all at once. To say it is my passion project would be an understatement."
