Dennis Haysbert Gearing Up for The Unit: The Movie!By Delaina Dixon | December 21, 2009 | Entertainment
Here’s an early Christmas gift for The Unit fans who mourned the end of its four season run this past May. Star Dennis Haysbert is working hard to bring it back, this time to the big screen!
“It may not be called a Unit movie, but I’ve partnered the author of Inside Delta Force and the series’ consultant, Command Sergeant Major retired Eric L. Haney. I just bought the rights to his books, and we’re going to make movies out of those,” Dennis reveals to the TV DivaGal exclusively.
Dennis has also partnered with Allstate Insurance for the companyΓÇÖs second Annual “Give Back Day,” which encourages people to volunteer on Monday, Jan. 18, 2010, also known as Martin Luther King Day. A do-gooder himself, Dennis got his Unit costars involved in his last charitable act.
“Last year, as a gift to my crew at The Unit, I put ten rain catchers in ten villages in Kenya, Africa, which not only saves lives with clean water, but actually saves the lives of the young girls whose task it is to go down to these watering holes and rivers to collect it,” Dennis shares. “It’s a treacherous journey to these watering holes, both from human and animal predators alike.”
No doubt his crew will give back to Dennis, and join up when he gets his “Unit” themed movies underway!
