EVERY MAN IS ORDINARY, UNTIL HE DOES AN EXTRAORDINARY THING
"90210" ALUM LUKE PERRY AND JASON PRIESTLEY REUNITE IN THE MAKING OF A HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL ORIGINAL FILM, "GOODNIGHT FOR JUSTICE," BECAUSE THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JUSTICE AND REVENGE
Hallmark Movie Channel Original Film World Premiere January 29
"90210" alum Luke Perry ("A Fine Step," "A Gunfighter's Pledge") and Jason Priestley ("Call Me Fitz," "Expecting A Miracle") reunite in the making of the Hallmark Movie Channel Original Film, "Goodnight For Justice," which is slated to premiere on the network, Saturday, January 29 (8 p.m. ET/PT, 7C). Luke Perry is Executive Producer and lead star of the film whose character Judge John Goodnight, a Circuit Judge, renders justice with a perfect persuasion of eloquence and deadly aim. Jason Priestley reunites with his friend of many years to direct the film, whose main character, Judge Goodnight was created by Perry.
In a stagecoach, a young boy creates an eidetic memory of his childhood, each sight and sound of all the days of his life recalled with stunning accuracy: Waiting outside a General Store; a candy barrel filled with peppermints; his mother and father, defeated, but still proud, hold hands as they talk about giving up the hardscrabble land they tried to call home and the excitement of new beginnings back East; an eloquent Circuit Judge, Aldous Shaw, and his elegantly-dressed wife offer solace to the Goodnight family; the judge's six-gun and rich leather holster gleam in the sun; the slow hum of good conversation mixed with hoofbeats; out of nowhere, noise, confusion, a brilliant flash; six masked outlaws surround the coach; gunfire explodes without cessation; horses flail; Judge Shaw is felled by a pearl-handled knife; carriage overturns with deadly force; bullets fly; all are lost, except the boy and the Judge's wife who will become his surrogate mother.
The boy who hid in weeds to save his own life is now a man who walks with grandeur and purpose. He is, a Circuit Judge, hell-bent on justice.
"Goodnight for Justice" is an Entertainment One Production in association with Randolph Films. John Morayniss, Ira Pincus and Luke Perry are Executive Producers. Producer is Randy Cheveldave and Supervising Producer is Tashi Bieler. Jason Priestley directs from a script by Neal and Tippi Dobrofsky.
