Michael C. Hall and James Marsden in ‘The Dead Circus’

Well, this is a far cry from last weekend’s Hop for James Marsden, but familiar territory for Dexter star Michael C. Hall, seen here heading to yoga class in Hollywood, CA. According to MovieWeb.com, Marsden and Hall are teaming up for Adam Davenport’s directorial debut: The Dead Circus, that delves into the mystery behind the death of ‘I Fought the Law’ singer Bobby Fuller.

Academy Award winner Melissa Leo and Michael Shannon have also signed onto the film that hopes to prove Fuller’s death was not a suicide, but part of the Manson Family Cult’s plot to kill celebrities.

Leo will play a Manson family member who comes out of hiding after five years with promises of a 16mm film that will reveal details about Fuller’s death. Charles Manson will be played by Marsden and Hall and Shannon will play Fuller’s managers.

Talk about a far cry from the Modern Family man!
