Confirmed - Chris Meloni to Join HBO's True Blood

Watch the First 18 Minutes of Tales of an Ancient Empire

Albert Pyun's long gestating Tales of an Ancient Empire has been picked up for distribution by Liongate, but apparently the version we'll all be able to see starting January 24th isn't exactly the director's own vision for the film so he's decided to release the first 18 minutes of his cut for comparison's sake.

Chris Meloni in Talks to Join HBO's True Blood

B-Sides: In Dishonor of Edward and Bella's Nuptials - All Eternity Blues
