AFM 2012: Raven Banner Entertainment Swoops in for Eternal Rights
It's been a long time since last we spoke about the vampire film The Eternal. Around two years in fact. But hey, even the most toothy of buns need some extra time in the oven on occasion. Read on for the latest.
From the Press Release
The worldwide rights to the upcoming horror/action film The Eternal were recently acquired by Canadian genre outfit Raven Banner Entertainment. The film, co-written and to be directed by Justin McConnell (The Collapsed), currently stars genre icon Michael Biehn (Aliens, The Terminator, The Divide) and well-respected Canadian actor Adam Kenneth Wilson (24 Hour Rental, Manson, Ending the Eternal). Production is slated for spring 2013. Additional cast will be announced in the coming weeks.
The film, written by McConnell, Wilson, and the late Kevin Hutchinson, will be overseen by prolific Canadian producer Avi Federgreen (High Life, One Week, Dead By Dawn 3D, Score: A Hockey Musical), executive producer Lorne Gross, McConnell, and the Raven Banner team.
“Samuel Gradius, a 500-year-old vampire, has lived far too long and wants to die. Not content with simple suicide, he decides to go out in the ways of old: in battle. Entrenched in a vicious mob-run city, he sets out to challenge the descendants of the great warriors he has faced in his past in hopes of finding someone worthy.”
Raven Banner’s Michael Paszt says of the project, “We’ve been looking for a cool action/horror hybrid, and The Eternal fits perfectly.”
“It’s exciting for me to work with Justin on this film. I really enjoyed his last film, The Collapsed, and think this will be a great follow-up,” added Avi Federgreen. “I’m happy to work with the Raven Banner team again, as they did a fantastic job getting my last film out to the world. They really seem to understand the project, and I can’t wait to finally get this film in front of an audience.”
