RLJ Entertainment has scored to bring Shane Abbess‘ sci-fi action film The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume 1 to theaters this coming fall.
The Osiris Child is set in a time of interplanetary colonization. Sy Lombrok , a drifter with a haunted past, forms an unlikely alliance with Kane Sommerville, a lieutenant who works for off-world military contractor Exor. In a race against time, they set out to rescue Kane’s young daughter Indi amid an impending global crisis created by Exor.
Kellan Lutz, Daniel McPherson, Teagan Croft, Rachel Griffiths, and Temeura Morrison star in the film, which was co-written by Abbess and Brian Cachia.
Abbess had this to day about the film:
“We wanted to bring back a type of movie that seemed all but extinct – the old school sci-fi action/adventure from the 80’s with monsters, prison planets, sky battles and a host of fun, colorful characters. It’s a big universe with a huge story arc and we’re ecstatic to introduce it to the world with this first installment.”
RLJ’s Chief Acquisitions Officer Mark Ward, who made the deal with Jesse DeLeo had this to say about the film after scoring the rights:
“We’re excited to be releasing this action-filled, science fiction film. Writer/director Shane Abbess is a true visual talent who cleverly applies his knowledge of filmmaking to bring a futuristic action-packed, adventure-filled story to the big screen.”
Look out for The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume 1 in select theaters and VOD this fall from RLJ Entertainment.
