Tales of an Ancient Empire just got a huge dose of badassedness in the form of a female daywalking vampire assassin to be portrayed by Victoria Maurette. Maurette joins the film’s previously announced cast that includes Christopher Lambert, Melissa Ordway, Kevin Sorbo, Lee Horsley, and Jennifer Siebel Newsom.
The news came down from director Albert Pyun’s official website, where you can also find a photo of Maurette in training in Buenos Aires for her role. She has previously appeared in two of Pyun’s films: Left for Dead (review here) and Bulletface.
A brief synopsis of Tales of an Ancient Empire is as follows: A princess (Ordway) is on a quest to unite the five greatest warriors to save her kingdom from a demon sorceress. But the odyssey to find them reveals a secret past for all.
To help familiarize fans with some of Maurette’s “talents”, Pyun provided us with the following wallpaper (click it for the full-size version) to share with our readers. In addition, he will be giving everyone who uses the 50% off Dread Central code to order Bulletface from his website (get more details here) a discount coupon for both Tales and the upcoming Cool Air (which is based on an H.P. Lovecraft short story) as a thank you.
