Announces New Movie "Goodnight for Justice" to Premiere January
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, 2011
"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.

association with Randolph Films. John Morayniss, Ira Pincus and Luke Perry
