Ross (Ladder 49My Dog Skip, The Tale of Desperaux) also has the historical drama To Have and to Hold coming up. The project marks the composer’s second collaboration with the director Ray Bengston following Alone Yet Not Alone. The movie starring Christopher Judge, Aiden Turner, Kelly Greyson, Rusty Joiner, Mark Dacascos and John Rhys-Davies is based on the early 20th century best-selling novel of the same name by Mary Johnston. James Richards has adapted the material for the screen and Barbara Divisek and Allen Taylor are producing the project. No word yet on a release date for the film.
