According to his IMDb profile, Haggerty has two films in post-production, The Untold Story, in which his character is billed as “Captain” and 40 Nights, in which he plays Yahweh (i.e. God).
As previously reported, Abrams Artists Agency now represents all licensing, publishing, TV, film, and multimedia rights for the Grizzly Adams franchise, for development.
Here are excerpts of the Variety article on Haggerty’s passing:
His daughter, Megan, was using a crowdfunding site to raise money for his fight against “this bear known as cancer,” and had accumulated about $10,500 of the $100,000 goal. […]
Haggerty was arrested in 1985 after selling cocaine to two undercover police officers. His career was further derailed following a 1993 motorcycle accident that almost claimed his life. He returned to his iconic role four years and 18 operations later in “Grizzly Mountain” and its 2000 sequel.
Haggerty most recently appeared in 2013 films “Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyan” and “Dead in 5 Heartbeats.”
Aside from Megan, Haggerty’s survivors include his other children, Dylan, Cody, Tracey and Don. A public service will be held in his honor at a yet-to-be-determined date.
The crowdfunding site mentioned by Variety is GiveForward.com. That campaign ended on December 22, 2015, far short of its goal.
