Fox’s David Tennant-led Broadchurch remake titled Gracepoint has cast Michael Peña as the murdered boy’s father.
Viewers of the original Broadchurch know that Peña’s character named Mark plays a pivotal role in the outcome of Danny’s murder.
Gracepoint is made up of an all-star cast: Anna Gunn will play Detective Ellie Miller. Tennant, who starred in the original series, will play lead detective Emmett. Jacki Weaver will play Susan Wright who takes an interest in Danny’s death. Kevin Zegers will play Owen Burke, the young reporter from the local town’s newspaper.
The eight episode series is expected to air in the 2014 – 2015 season on Fox.
Questions still linger about this new version of the show. For example, those who saw the original Broadchurch just this year are wondering if the same person will the commit the crime in Gracepoint.
ITV’s Broadchurch season 2 is set to begin filming in 2014 too. Tennant is a part of both projects.
