SIX-TIME EMMY(R) AWARD NOMINEE VICTOR GARBER AND EMMY(R) NOMINEE MICHELLE FORBES START PRODUCTION ON "THE HUNTERS," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE OCTOBER 25, BASED ON JOSHUA WILLIAMSON'S COMIC BOOK MIRROR, MIRROR

Alexa Vega, Robbie Amell, Keenan Tracey and Dan Payne Also Star; Part of "Walmart and P&G Present Walden Family Theater," A New Series of Family Movies Created by Walmart, P&G, Walden Media and ARC Entertainment

In an adaptation of Joshua Williamson's comic book Mirror Mirror, this modern-day-fairy-tale-adventure, based on the magical mirror from "Snow White," follows the brothers Flynn as they embark on an international quest to find their parents and save the world from the clutches of evil. Hallmark Channel announces the start of production for "The Hunters," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie, shooting in Vancouver and Thailand, with a World Premiere slated for Friday, October 25 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). Six-time Emmy(R) Award nominee Victor Garber ("Argo," "Alias," "William and Catherine: A Royal Romance") stars along with Emmy(R) Award nominee Michelle Forbes ("In Treatment," "True Blood"), Alexa Vega ("Spy Kids," "Machete Kills"), Robbie Amell ("The Tomorrow People"), Keenan Tracey ("Bates Motel") and Dan Payne ("Alice, I Think," "Stargate Atlantis").

The film is also part of Hallmark Channel's exciting new Friday night appointment viewing franchise, "Walden Family Theater," created in collaboration with Walmart, Procter & Gamble, award-winning family entertainment producer Walden Media ("The Chronicles Of Narnia," "Bridge To Terabithia," "Holes") and fast-growing independent studio ARC Entertainment. "Walden Family Theater" is designed to further fill the void on TV for quality family entertainment.

Carter and Jordyn Flynn (Payne, Forbes) aren't the average mom and dad. For them, a typical workday can take place anywhere in the world, raiding ornate museums and evading pursuing authorities as Hunters, protectors of powerful fairy tale artifacts that are anything but make believe. While they take their jobs seriously, they're just as concerned about the welfare of their two sons, 21-year old Paxton (Amell) and 16-year old Tripp (Tracey), who are unaware of their parents' true line of work.

When Carter and Jordyn disappear after being intercepted by the mysterious Mai during one of their missions, the boys learn the truth about their parents and their lineage from the Flynns' young assistant Dylan (Vega). They turn to old family friend Mason (Garber) for help but they soon discover that the deceitful Mason is after what the Flynns were trying to protect - an enchanted mirror that has the ability to grant any wish. It's got quite a history, too: It's the same mirror that played a pivotal role in the destiny of Snow White. It becomes evident that it's up to the valiant brothers and Dylan to save the day before very real fairy tale magic falls into Mason's less-than-worthy hands.

"The Hunters" is produced by Eh-Okay Entertainment and is presented by Walden Media, ARC Entertainment and Kickstart Productions, in association with Walmart and Procter & Gamble. Jason Netter is the executive producer. The film is produced by Heather Puttock, written by Matthew Huffman and Jeffrey Schechter, based on Joshua Williamson's comic book Mirror Mirror published by Kickstart Comics and directed by Nisha Ganatra.
