I wanted to post some info about a new piece of work, that I and Epoch are mounting, using a lot of the same team, here and in Korea that produced Roswell Conspiracies. We're currently in production on a 90 minute, direct to video animated feature: "War of the Worlds: Goliath".
It's an R rated, retro-history, steam punk epic set in a 1914, fourteen years after the first failed Martian invasion. Mankind has rebuilt her cities and military, adapting a lot of the abandoned Martian technology. They've created an international defense force, A.R.E.S., based on the lower end of Manhattan and under the command of Theodore Roosevelt. They've built a formidable military centered around giant, steam powered battle tripods and 1500 foot long armored zeppelin aircraft carriers.
Think of "Band of Brothers" meets "Star Wars", meets World War 1.
My pal, Kevin Eastman is co-producing with me, as is Highlander Series writer/show runner, David Abramowitz, so we're recreated a part of the creative team from the "Highlander: The Search for Vengeance" anime feature.
David Abramowitz also wrote the full script, based on a treatment of mine. He's crafted an amazingly developed set of compelling characters in a life and death situation as they fight together against an implacable enemy. I really think, that if you found Roswell Conspiracies compelling, you'll like what we're doing with "War of the Worlds: Goliath".
It was though David's good offices that we were able to get the Highlander Series team together—Adrian Paul, Elizabeth Gracen, Peter Wingfield, James Brynes. We recorded them last month and man, it was a terrific experience. They all went out of their way to give our little epic their very, very best.
We've augmented them with some other terrific talent. Adam Baldwin, Mark Sheppard, James Arnold Taylor, Beau Billingslea and all others have really brought our characters to life.
We don't have an official site up and running yet, but we have some pictures and links already on line at the heavymetalmagazinefanpage site and on Adrian Paul's own website.
