Seems to have no shortage of offers, Ron Perlman has signed deals to both star in and executive produce a big screen feature titled "Standing Down", which will be developed under Big Screen Entertainment banner.
Written by Ron Zimmerman, the project presents the story about Sgt. Patrick Ulysses Macklin, a career soldier who must face the prospect of life without the US Army. Also attached to star is hip-hop sensation Pras Michel with BSEG CEO Kimberley Kates, Michael Manasseri, and David Zappone all producing.
"We are putting together a dynamic team to bring Ron Zimmerman's powerful script to life," so Kates remarked.
In related news, Perlman is currently in final negotiations to topline indie horror "I Sell the Dead" alongside Larry Fessenden and "Lost" star Dominic Monaghan. Revolving around the18th-century corpse traders, the flick is slated to start filming May this year in New York with Glenn McQuaid taking double duty of writing and directing.
