It seems the USA network cannot get enough Mark Harmon. Not only is NCIS playing almost 24/7 on the network, but they have tapped him to star in a 2 hour movie.
USA is developing a movie based on the best-selling Prey series of novels by John Sandford. Harmon will play the central character in the books, Minneapolis Deputy Police Chief Lucas Davenport. The movie is based on the 10th of the 20 novels in the series, Certain Prey, in which Davenport goes against a lethal hit woman and a ferociously cunning killer determined to hunt him down.
USA has acquired the rights to all 20 books, so it is possible that, if successful, Harmon could reprise his role a number of times.
Production of the movie starts in May with Jaffe-Braunstein Films is producing, with Michael Jaffe, Howard Braunstein and Harmon executive producing.
