For some the Easter holiday was a time of work, not hunting for chocolate eggs and bunnies, and one such individual is director Albert Pyun, who dropped us a line over the weekend with an update on his Tales of an Ancient Empire along with a batch of new stills.
According to Pyun, “All the shooting is now finished, and here are some new stills. The first is from one of the last shoots with Victoria Maurette (“Kara”) and Jessica Delgado (“Levana”). This is a set still and not how the scene looks in the movie, but it’s pretty cool. Second is a green screen shot of the three primary assassins after Sorbo and company. It’s not composited yet but is still a nice visual. Next is Dernier (Xavier Declie) being seduced by Kara. This is followed by Delgado as Levana, Maurette’s Kara being turned, and finally, Maurette in full vampire assassin mode.
45% of the film is now horror and Gothic vampire. You can expect the trailer mid-April.”
A brief synopsis of Tales of an Ancient Empire, which stars Christopher Lambert, Melissa Ordway, Kevin Sorbo, Lee Horsley, Victoria Maurette, and Jennifer Siebel Newsom, 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.
