RLJ Entertainment has acquired all North American rights to the highly anticipated action/science fiction film The Osiris Child. Directed by Shane Abbess (Infini, Gabriel), who also co-wrote the film with Brian Cachia (Infini), the film stars Kellan Lutz (Twilight franchise), Daniel MacPherson (The Shannara Chronicles, APB), Isabel Lucas (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Knight of Cups), Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith), with Rachel Griffiths (Hacksaw Ridge, Six Feet Under), and Teagan Croft, making her feature film debut.
The Osiris Child is expected to be in theaters and On Demand in the fall of 2017.
The Osiris Child Synopsis:
The Osiris Child is set in a time of interplanetary colonization. Sy Lombrok (Kellan Lutz), a drifter with a haunted past, forms an unlikely alliance with Kane Sommerville (Daniel MacPherson), a lieutenant who works for off-world military contractor Exor. In a race against time, they set out to rescue Kane’s young daughter Indi (Teagan Croft) amid an impending global crisis created by Exor.
About the movie, Abbess said:
We wanted to bring back a type of movie that seemed all but extinct — the old school sci-fi action/adventure from the ‘80s with monsters, prison planets, sky battles, and a host of fun, colorful characters. It’s a big universe with a huge story arc and we’re ecstatic to introduce it to the world with this first installment.
The Osiris Child is produced by Matthew Graham, Brett Thornquest, Sidonie Abbene, and Abbess via their Storm Alley and Eclectik Vision banners, in association with Phonetic Images and executive produced by Steven Matusko. The producing team previously collaborated on Infini and Terminus, and, most recently, the upcomingBetter Watch Out.
