TWO-NIGHT MOVIE EVENT 'KNIGHTS OF BLOODSTEEL' PREMIERES APRIL 19 ON SCI FI

Four-Hour Fantasy Adventure Stars David James Elliott, Natassia Malthe, and Christopher Lloyd

New York, NY � February 24, 2009 � SCI FI will premiere the two-night movie event Knights of Bloodsteel (formerly titled Mirabilis) on Sunday, April 19 at 9pm ET with the second half of the four-hour fantasty adventure airing on Monday, April 20 at 9pm ET. David James Elliott (JAG), Natassia Malthe (Elektra) and three-time Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd (Taxi, Back to the Future) star in the movie event set against the backdrop of knights, sorcerers and dragons where heroes battle the forces of darkness.

Knights of Bloodsteel is produced by Reunion Pictures (Lisa Richardson, Matthew O'Connor, Tom Rowe) with RHI Entertainment, (Robert Halmi, Sr. and Robert Halmi, Jr.) distributing the project internationally. Reunion Pictures acquired the rights to the property from Industry Entertainment's Keith Addis and Andrew Deane. Emmy-nominated Sam Egan (Sanctuary, Jeremiah, The Outer Limits) wrote the script.

Mirabilis is a world dependent upon the rare metal called "bloodsteel," a precious element that is the source of all magical power -- and now the bloodsteel is running out. The forces of evil, led by the ruthless and powerful Dragon Eye, are descending on Mirabilis to take control of the remaining bloodsteel. Acting on an ancient prophecy, the elf wizard Tesselink (Lloyd) recruits four ordinary people to save Mirabilis. A human vigilante John Serragoth (Elliott), an elf bounty hunter Perfidia (Malthe), a goblin with extrasensory powers Ber-lak (Dru Viergever), and a young conman Adric (Christopher Jacot) become the Knights of Bloodsteel. They undertake a quest for the mythical Crucible, reputed to be the source of all bloodsteel. Dragon Eye and his army are also looking for the Crucible, as whoever finds it first will have unlimited power.
