SCI FI CHANNEL GREENLIGHTS 4-HOUR FANTASY ADVENTURE MIRABILIS

David James Elliott Set to Star

Beverly Hills, CA - July 20, 2008 -- SCI FI Channel has greenlit Mirabilis, (working title) a 4-hour fantasy adventure miniseries where heroes battle the forces of darkness set against a backdrop of knights, sorcerers and dragons. Set to star in the movie are David James Elliott (JAG) as protagonist John Serrogoth and Natassia Malthe (Elektra) as Perfidia.

Mirabilis will be produced by Reunion Pictures (Lisa Richardson, Matthew O'Connor, Tom Rowe) with RHI Entertainment, (Robert Halmi, Sr. and Robert Halmi, Jr.) and Industry Entertainment (Keith Addis and Andrew Deane) are also attached to the project. Emmy-nominated Sam Egan (Sanctuary, Jeremiah, The Outer Limits) wrote the script. RHI Entertainment will distribute the project internationally.

Once a paradise fueled by the all-powerful sorcery-grade metal known as bloodsteel, the distant land of Mirabilis begins to decay as supplies of the supernatural substance dwindle. The evil warlord Dragon Eye fights to gain control of the world's supply of bloodsteel, which he will use to rule Mirabilis. But, an ancient prophecy propels four ordinary citizens to battle Dragon Eye. Their quest is to find the fabled Crucible - source of all bloodsteel - before the corrupt forces of darkness destroy their world.
