Nathan Fillion’s long been rumoured for the project but that’s unlikely to happen. Marky Mark may not have the acting dexterity (sorry Mark) but what arguably he lacks in ability he certainly makes up with in dedication and physical attributes. Perhaps not the obvious or even the most popular choice, Duhamel earns his place having had a recurring role in the ‘Transformers’ movies where he plays Lt. Colonel William Lennox, so has the escaping-huge-killer-nasties-and-spraying-machine-gun-bullets thing down to a tee.
The trials of the Pendle witches preceded Salem by almost a century, occurring in 1612 in and around Pendle Hill in Lancashire, a place thought 'wild and lawless’ at the time. 12 were accused of the murders of 10 people in the local area by the use of witchcraft, among them six from the same family, the Demdikes, and others from the Chattox family. Agnes Sampson was the most feted of those accused in the North Berwick witch trials in East Lothian in 1590, which saw more than 100 accused and 70 executed.
