Dennis Hopper has signed on board an action-drama TV series to be called FLATLAND. No details of the series where revealed, though the program's producers claim that it will be created in the style of THE MATRIX and CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON.

The Ruddy Morgan Organization and China-based Hweilai Studios' production will also star Bumper Robinson, Phillip Rhys, Francoise Yip (ROMEO MUST DIE), Katherine Kendall, and Liam Waite (GHOSTS OF MARS).

Though the series has, as yet, not been picked up for broadcast in the U.S., the production company declares that they are in talks with several major broadcast and/or cable networks. Production of the series is set to start soon on location in Shanghai and will be shot on high-definition 24P digital video. The same medium is being used by George Lucas for STAR WARS: EPISODE II.
