Official Press Release
Top Cow Productions Inc. announced today that actors Jenna Dewan (“Step up,” “The Grudge 2”) and Luke Goss (“Hellboy II: The Golden Army,” “Blade II”), who were recently announced as starring in a movie based on The Magdalena comic series, will appear at the publisher’s panel on Saturday, July 26 at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about their involvement with the project. In addition, the actors will sign “Magdalena” posters at the Top Cow booth (#2329) after the panel. Dewan will also appear at the Top Cow booth on Friday for an hour-long signing.
The Magdalena is a Top Cow comic series about a generational line of female warriors descended from Mary Magdalene who have been charged with protecting the Catholic Church. Each generation’s Magdalena warrior is handed down the Spear of Destiny to use as her weapon. The current Magdalena is Patience, who has clashed with her superiors at the Vatican and so has removed any allegiance to them, though she still acts to fulfill her mission as a Holy Warrior.
Dewan is set to play Patience, while Goss will play Kristof, an agent sent by the Church to act as Patience’s trainer and mentor.
“The Magdalena” movie is produced by Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Motion Pictures, Platinum Studios and Top Cow Productions.
