Arias on Apocalypse Movie Legion

Yancey Arias talks LegionOne can’t help but wonder about the myriad of problems Screen Gems has with the upcoming Dennis Quaid apocalypse movie “>Legion. The other day it was announced the film wouldn’t see the light of projectors until January 22nd, 2010, even though it’s been done for months. Co-star Yancey Arias doesn’t feel there’s anything wrong with it at all, however.

“It looks like Legion is going to be really good,” Arias told Sci-Fi Wire recently. ””I play a Los Angeles police officer who witnesses archangel Michael arriving to the planet and wreaking havoc. Yeah, L.A. gets destroyed again, and you might say I have a short-lived situation.”

Legion, for those of you who have forgotten, tells the story of a group of people trapped in a diner in the Southwest when the apocalypse hits. Suddenly they’re tasked with saving the world when they realize the waitress is pregnant with the messiah.

Kevin Durand (“Lost”, The Echo) stars as the angel Gabriel and Paul Bettany (The Da Vinci Code) stars as the angel Michael; everyone else, including Arias, is just in the way of their epic battle. I love a good apocalypse movie so hope this one’s worth waiting for!

    Principal photography has been done for only a few months. Doesn’t mean the movie has. Got hopes for this regardless of the release date.
