There’s a new sheriff in Marais, Louisiana!
Jennifer Beals has been tapped to play Sheriff Lucilia Cable, mother to prominent Swamp Thing and Sandman character Matthew Cable. You can read her official character description below.
Tough as nails and pragmatic, Cable’s fierce devotion to her son, Matt, is rivaled only by her sworn duty to serve and protect the town of Marais. As the community she has dedicated her life to defending is beset by strange forces, she must double down in her efforts to safeguard everyone she holds dear.
She joins Crystal Reed (Abby Arcane) and Maria Sten (Liz Tremayne). ‘Swamp Thing’ hails from James Wan’s Atomic Monster Productions, as well as Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear, and Len Weisman. Weisman is directing the pilot, with production expected to take place in Wilmington, North Carolina before the end of this year. It will air exclusively on the streaming service DC Universe sometime in 2019.
