Legion M has dropped the first look teaser trailer of Archenemy at their SDCC panel.
Archenemy is a gritty, hard-edged epic that turns the superhero genre on its head, starring Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike, True Blood, Rampage) and written/directed by Adam Egypt Mortimer (Daniel Isn’t Real) from a story by Mortimer and Lucas Passmore. The film tells the story of Max Fist played by Joe Manganiello, who claims to be a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space to earth, where he has no powers. No one believes his stories except for a local teen named Hamster, played by Skylan Brooks, and his older sister, Indigo, played by Zolee Griggs. Together, they take to the streets to wipe out the local drug syndicate.
The film is produced by Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen and Elijah Wood for SpectreVision, along with Kim Sherman, Adam Egypt Mortimer, and 359’s Joe Manganiello and Nick Manganiello. The film’s executive producers include SpectreVision’s Stacy Jorgensen, Legion M’s Paul Scanlan, Jeff Annison, Terri Lubaroff, and David Baxter, Head Gear Films’ Phil Hunt and Compton Ross, Almost Never Films’ Danny Chan, Yiju Chen, and Danny Roth, Voltage Pictures’ Babacar Diene, and Alan Pao and Luke Daniels.
Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys Will Debut On August 28 With A Diabolical Look Back On Season One And Continue With Each New Episode Starting September 4.
Amazon Studios today announced it has officially ordered a third season of its hit series The Boys, co-produced with Sony Pictures Television, ahead of its highly anticipated second season debut on September 4. The announcement was made today during The Boys Comic-Con@Home Panel. Additionally, it was revealed that Emmy Award-winning host Aisha Tyler will serve as host and executive producer of the official The Boys aftershow Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. In each episode of Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys, members of the cast, creative team and other special guests will join Tyler as they dissect the events that unfold in each episode.
“Amazon, in a bold and historic push to expand their ‘weirdo’ demographic, has greenlit Season 3 of The Boys! The writers and I are hard at work in the (virtual) writer’s room and we’re sad to say, the world has given us way too much material. We hope to be shooting in early 2021, but that’s up to a microscopic virus,” said showrunner and executive producer Eric Kripke. “As if that wasn’t enough, we’re bringing you a Season 2 after show, Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys. Double entendre intended. Hosted by the incomparable Aisha Tyler and guest starring the cast and crew, it’s a deep dive into how we make this insane thing. Seriously, thanks to Sony, Amazon and the fans. We love making this show so much, and we’re thrilled we get to make more.”
“Eric Kripke and the incredible cast of The Boys continue to deliver a wild and action-packed series full of surprises and can’t-miss moments that have made the series a global hit,” said Vernon Sanders, Co-Head of Television, Amazon Studios. “We couldn’t be more excited to see where Eric takes The Boys and The Supes in Season 3, and to have Aisha Tyler join The Boys family as the host of Prime Rewind: Inside The Boys.” Continue reading →
