A demon sorceress and her vampires ... heroes ... villains. Plus gore, blood, and naked damsels. A typical weekend in DC's offices?

We've been staying in close contact with director Albert Pyun with regard to updates on his new project, Tales of an Ancient Empire ("Pyun Ready to Film Again in Argentina" – April 2008); and as promised in our previous story, Albert just dropped us a line with some additional casting news.
Legendary - and extremely eclectic - director Albert Pyun dropped us a line last night to let us know that on May 5th he'll start shooting Tales of an Ancient Empire, his long-awaited follow-up to the movie he's best known for: The Sword and the Sorcerer.
Unreal. That's one way to describe Albert Pyun's latest freak-out flick, Invasion (review here). Filmed in one night, in one take, and delivering one hell of a chilling experience, Invasion presents another
