Director Albert Pyun dropped us a line this week to show off the inked artwork (by Rob E. Brown) for his upcoming film Red Moon, which he describes as a post-apocalyptic fantasy with lots of violence and creatures. Read on for more details!
Pyun expects to wrap the film, co-written by Cynthia Curnan and Randall Fontana, by November 24th. It marks his third collaboration with Fontana. Curnan also produces. The shoot will take place entirely in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the film has been already picked up for North America release by Wrekin Hill in the late spring 2012.
Red Moon serves as a sequel of sorts to the filmmaker’s Tales of an Ancient Empire. Pyun tells us, “For Red Moon I took the sword and sorcery world into a post-apocalyptic world, a similar world to my Cyborg. So its grittier and darker. The idea is it’s 20 years after Tales ends, and the vampires have totally destroyed civilization like a plague. Tanis (Melissa Ordway) is like the Mad Max character – the last remaining sentinel of good. It’s a pretty harrowing tale, more horror than light adventure.” He expects Kevin Sorbo and Michael Pare (who appear in Tales) to return along with Sasha Mitchell, Olivier Gruner, Cazzy Golomb, and newcomer Allexa D’Alessio.
