Trailer, Photos, and More for Syfy’s Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island



Post Thumb:


Aside from the Winchester brothers themselves, our favorite character on “Supernatural” is probably Crowley, as portrayed by Mark Sheppard. Now he’s stepping behind the camera for Syfy’s Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island, and we have all the details you need right here along with the trailer and a few never-before-seen photos.

From the Press Release:
K2 Pictures and Leverage Entertainment are thrilled to announce Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island, a re-imagining of one of the world’s most beloved literary adventures, will debut as a Syfy Saturday Original Movie on February 11, 2012, at 9 p.m. EST in the United States. Filmed on location in Louisiana, this cinematic adaptation of Jules Verne’s 1874 novel The Mysterious Island (L’Île mystérieuse), adapted for the screen by Cameron Larson (Xtinction: Predator X), is the directorial debut of Syfy on-screen favorite Mark Sheppard (“Battlestar Galactica”, “Supernatural”, “Firefly”, “Warehouse 13”).

“We were faced with a tremendous challenge. It’s always hard to bring Jules Verne’s stories to life – you run the risk of upsetting an awful lot of diehard fans. But we tried to stay true to some of the key elements of the book in the spirit of what makes Jules Verne one of the greatest storytellers of all time,” says director Sheppard, who also makes a cameo in the film as a young Captain Nemo.

In Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island, as famine and death ravage Richmond, Virginia, five northern Civil War POWs, including Emmy Award-winner Pruitt Taylor Vince (AMC’s “The Walking Dead”, JFK, Drive Angry, Constantine) and Lochlyn Munro (Dead Man on Campus, White Chicks), plan a daring escape by hijacking a hot air balloon. Drifting through the night, they wake to find themselves marooned on a desert island… but they’re not alone.

Littered with wreckage, the island is home to a cast of survivors who have been lost in space and time, including sisters Abby Fogg (Susie Abromeit, Battle Los Angeles) and Jules Fogg (Gina Holden, Saw 3D and Alien vs. Predator), two young women from modern times who become stranded while flying over the Bermuda Triangle.

Forced to defend themselves against vicious pirates, terrifying creatures and a volcano that’s ready to blow, they must find a way to survive. Their only hope to escape the island lies with its longest resident, Captain Nemo (Mark Sheppard’s real life father – W. Morgan Sheppard, Star Trek, Transformers, Gods and Generals). With his help they craft another plan… but will they make it before the island claims them all forever?

“This remarkable adaptation of the classic Verne story is sure to delight adventurers of all ages, as well as fans of the original story,” says George M. Kostuch, President and CEO, K2 Pictures + K2D, producer and sales agent of the film.

The Saturday 9 p.m. EST telecast is the cornerstone slot for “Syfy Saturday Original Movies,” making the network’s premiere a milestone accomplishment for K2 Pictures + K2D. Prior to this deal the network had acquired two other K2 films (Mutants, Lockjaw: Rise of the Kulev Serpent) for U.S. television broadcast on Syfy. Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island is the first “Syfy Saturday Original Movie” for the K2 brand.

Zac Efron Looks Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Ted Bundy



We told you a while back that Zac Efron would be assuming the role of charismatic serial killer Ted Bundy in Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger’s new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (that title is a wondrous mouthful); and today Efron himself took to Twitter to share the first image of himself as Bundy. Check it out!

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Principal photography began back in October 2017.

Make a Date With The Devil and Father Amorth



Well, that headline’s not entirely accurate… you wouldn’t want to be a third wheel now, would you? What we’re talking about here is William Friedkin’s new documentary The Devil and Father Amorth. In it Friedkin witnesses first-hand the work of the Vatican’s in-house exorcist; and if that doesn’t pique your interest, I don’t know what will!

Deadline is reporting today that we can expect to see the flick sometime this spring in theaters via The Orchard.

Known as the “Dean of Exorcists,” Father Amorth (who turned 92 not so long ago) has performed thousands of exorcism rituals to rid evil from the human body.

In the early 1970s when I directed The Exorcist, I had not witnessed an exorcism; but I wondered how close I had come to portraying reality,” Friedkin tells the site. “I had been curious to meet Father Amorth for many years; and when he granted permission to meet and film him in Rome last May, it was the opportunity to complete the circle and see how close that film came to reality.
