A Few More Details On That SWORD AND THE SORCERER Follow-Up We've Been Hearing About!!

Merrick here...
Last week came rumblings that TALES OF AN ANCIENT EMPIRE was gearing-up for production. You can find that article HERE. A few more details have emerged about the film, which is a pseudo-sequel to 1982's THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER (Box Office Mojo identifies SWORD as the 7th highest-grossing sword & sorcery movie of all time...even above EXCALIBUR!) Yancy Butler (WITCHBLADE)...

and Leah Cairns ("Racetrack" on BATTLESTAR GALACTICA)...

...have officially jumped on-board TALES, joining Christopher Lambert and Kevin Sorbo. Yancy plays half-sister to Lambert, Sorbo, and Victoria Maurette (image HERE). The project rolls May 5th in Argentina (Buenos Aires) & will end its shoot in Tunisia. And... The three-bladed sword wielded in the first film will make some sort of appearance here. Be still my geeky heart!

    Kevin Sorbo

    With the stellar talents of Kevin Sorbo and Chris Lambert attached. One can obviously expect this to be a top notch production all the way around. The only way this cast could be better is with the addition of Cynthia Rothrock.

    SWORD AND SORCERY

    by Herb West

    That's an interesting list of what they call sword & sorcery. Most of them are low budget 80's movies.

    Of the B-Grade Sword and Sorcery films of the 80's

    by Gozu

    "Sword and The Sorcerer" was easily the best. I mean, anyone remember "Deathstalker?" "Barbarian Queen?" These movies were fun, but even when I first saw it as a kid, I knew "S&TS" was a cut above. Also, the difference between Albert Pyun and Uwe Boll is that Albert Pyun at least made one good movie.

  • April 23, 2008, 1:33 p.m. CST

    It's so true...

    by toxicbuddha

    ..cheesy 80's fantasy, much like the 60's, can only be appreciated if you were THERE for it. And this flick is at least 25 years overdue. As for Yancy Butler, that woman is about as sexy as her name. While no woman born on this planet actually has Turner-like anatomical structure, Butler's she-male on a bad day looks certainly didn't help matters when trying to watch the Witchblade show.

    by lecter1914

    Krull was pretty good back in the day, but I havent checked it out in MANY years. Willow was the business though. I wish they made more movies like the cheesy 80's fantasy now adays. I mean they werent always great but they had one thing that most films seem to be lacking....Imagination.

    Yancy Butler???

    by Ye Not Guilty

    From Wikipedia: "On February 11, 2007, Butler was arrested in her home on the charge of disorderly conduct. Butler had called police to her home to complain that her boyfriend would not give her the keys to her car or let her leave. Her boyfriend told police that she had been drinking and doing drugs and he did not want her driving. She also allegedly threw things at him because he would not let her leave. Butler was released on $500 bail and ordered by a judge to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings seven times a week until her next court appearance on March 8, 2007. On March 13, 2007, Butler was charged with driving under the influence and failure to drive in the established lane after she crashed her Saab 900 into a wire guard rail in Sharon, Connecticut. The actress was released on a $500 bail and ordered to appear in Bantam Superior Court on March 26, 2007. On March 28, Bantam Superior Court Judge Richard Marano issued a re-arrest order for Butler because she had twice not appeared at scheduled court dates. The judge directed that the warrant not be served until April 2 to give Butler a chance to explain why she wasn't in court." Hope she's gotten her shit together recently.

    My best friend has hated Albert Pyun and his films for a loooong time. He still amkes jokes about the guy. I tend to agree with him, except for the fact that I have always thought that THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER was a fun movie, and much better than most of the sword and sorcery fantasies that reared their ugly heads around the early to mid eighties. And, if done wel, I would look forwrd to seeing the sequel.

    ...if you make nothing but absolute shit films through the 80's and 90's, like Albert Pyun did, then you're cool, but if you make absolute shit films now, like Uwe Boll does, you're the worst thing ever and get enternally coated in fanboy bile. Wonder what it's like to be so batshit fanboy crazy where that no longer seems rediculously hypocritical...<p>Albert Pyun isn't as bad a director as Uwe Boll, he's worse. Always has been, always will be. I mean when you've made something like 40 movies, and this piece of utter shit is one of the 'highlights' of your career, well, there just aint any coming back from that.

    The only good thing about The Sword & The Sorceror...

    by Sledge Hammer

    Can you say; House of The Dead? Only an idiot would show game footage in the middle of a shooting scene.Atleast in the Doom movie,there was a nod to game's first person perspective.Nothing more.Oh and I forgot to mention how Boll tried to capatilize on the Bullet time effect,but with stupid 360 rotating scenes in HOTD.<p>Bloodrayne would have been just as bad if not for Ben Kingsley's lending a modicum of "class" to that shitest.Pyun's Cap was bad, but it's fight scenes far outweigh anything Bollshit has done.

    by Halloween68

    This looks like crap. And this coming from a huge fan of the original. At least I was 30 years ago when I saw it at the theatre like twice with my D&D geek friends. Somebody needs to police these actors and force retirement after they fill their quota. Lambert should have known he'll never see anything as good as the original HIGHLANDER. Sorbo should have realized HERCULES was it for him. There names and backgrounds should have been retired and archived in imdb after their perspective so many minutes of fame.

    Ferrets (Mustela furo) are intelligent, lively, furry mammals (they are not rodents!). Ferrets are the only domesticated member of the Mustelidae family of carnivores.

Does she cry herself to sleep every night? Do you apologize to your mom?

To be the bitch in EVERYTHING HE STARS IN. To be John C. McGinley's bitch in everything HE'S in, so we hope McGinley gets cast as Starr in PREACHER) into a fucking verb. You call everyone on here losers, yet your name means "to tar someone with the gross accusation that they are as wet lettuce as famed bitch Zach Braff".

    right, when you get all stressed and whatever, yeah, like you are now, why not go and have a wank, or maybe a pleasant stroll and a cigarette and just try to remain calm? typing such venom, disdain and contempt for each other and your respective mothers cannot be doing all that much good for your blood pressure, and i dare say your fingers are getting sore from bashing the keyboard in. actors, and indeed movies, are transient things. we love em, hate em, defend em, slam em, but all things must pass eventually. oh, and if you don't smoke, then why not head to Gibraltar for a weekend? they are going to start shooting the monkeys on the rock just now. i seem to recall monkeys upsetting at least one of you, so perhaps shooting some of the thieving little bastards might help you get a sense of perspective, yeah?

    politics and religion are as false and empty as the movies. i wouldn't even attempt to suggest that one should fill their life with those. but what about personal pursuits that don't have to do with vicarious entertainment and fantasy wish-fulfillment? creating art, whether its music or your own movies. how about travel? or quiet contemplation? conversing with friends? drinking beer at the beach? getting high and climbing some rocks? look, i don't know anything about you and you know nothing about me so let's not get into one of those stupid online arguments. i just think that there is more to be offered than recycled material that pushes our buttons. but that's just me.

    Kevin Sorbo was on Fox's RED EYE last night

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Sorbo was a guest that stuck around for the entire show and I have to say he came off as a pretty damn likable guy with a good sense of humor. He just seems like someone who is completely at ease with himself and having been essentially typecast as HERCULES for life (which ran for 7 years) followed by ANDROMEDA (that ran for 6). Then again, he should be at ease -- that's a solid 13 years of steady, paying work as an actor which is no small feat in itself. In fact, he made a good joke about that (sustaining a career in Hollywood) when asked about guest-starring on the O.C. and now being the older guy who had to work with younger kids who were now technically the stars. At which point he basically joked back, "Yeah, they all thought they were hot shit, but how many of them are working now!"<p>During the course of the show, they also pointed out two things I never knew. One, that Sorbo was actually the alternate choice for Superman in CLARK AND LOIS (but lost out at the last minute to Dean Cain), and second that at one point Sorbo was actually ranked the Third most bankable TV star in Hollywood (behind Oprah and Regis) and that at its height of popularity, HERCULES was actually the MOST watched TV show in the world. To which Sorbo joked back, "Yeah, we were BAYWATCH BC."

    Sorry bud, but you lost a loooonnnnggg time ago. I find it both sad and funny that you keep operating under some sort of delusional fantasy that you're somehow contributing here. The truth of the matter is, you're not. Quite frankly, I don't know that you ever have...aside from making ghoulish statements about the deceased.<P>You say you "discuss movies all the time". When?! Where?! Because it sure as Hell ain't on this site. All you do is keep a lookout for a handful of Talkbackers (who have all destroyed you on several occassions) and as soon as you find them, you attack them with a bunch of weak-ass trollishness. Trust me - I've seen and dealt with some memorable trolls...but your shit is WEAK.<P>So, what it comes down to is this (like I've told you before): I'm infinitely cooler than you. And so are the guys who continue to trounce you at every turn. Now, I'm sure you're already beating yourself up trying to think of some sort of crazy comeback. One that you'll probably tag with "OWNED" or some other ludicrous remark. And I could challenge you to say something...anything...that might appear to be intelligent or even clever...but I know it's something you're not capable of doing. Unlike deepthroating pickles, it's really not your bag.

  • April 25, 2008, 4:15 a.m. CST

    In honour of that

    by Lost Jarv

    I give you Jarv's 3 worst Horror movie of last year: <P>In reverse order- <P>3)28 weeks later: boneheaded, dull, badly acted, badly written rehash of the first one- except this time they decided to ignore London geography. The most unnecessary sequel since Matrix Reloaded<P>2)30 Days of Night: This film makes me want to punch everyone that recommended it (Harry) in the face. Fucking terrible waste of an excellent concept- with ridiculous cliched characters, a dearth of acting, and an ending that makes me want to never watch a vampire film again. And I HATED the vampires: poorly conceived neo-goth wankers that inexplicable communicated through annoying echo-location and shrieking, they also didn't haev fangs but had whole mouths full of pointy teeth instead. Not scary. Note to Hollywood- shrieking is not frightening, and what made sense in the Descent does not make sense anywhere else. <P>1)Halloween. I didn't watch it, but there was no way this wasn't going to be number 1. How the fuck dare you remake the archetype slasher movie. A film so fucking perfect that it still scares the shit out of people nearly 30 years later. And to make Michael Myers a trailer park redneck? You should be fucking ashamed of yourselves. <P>Jarv would also like to give honourable mention in the shit parade to Hostel 2, Captivity, The Hitcher, AvP:R, Resident Evil 3, anything with Saw in the title, and many, many others- just because I haven't named you don't think I'm not aware of you. <P>A fucking awful year.

    I have never once seen you post anything that could be called movie stuff. <P>All you do is chase us around like a fucking half-starved mongrel dog. Your one example was you posting a lot of vicious crap about an ACTOR. If he had been a fucking bin-man it would have been the same shit. <P>Now fuck off until you have something useful to contribute.

    here's one for ya...

    by Braffed

    Batman movies suck balls. The new one will suck balls. Heath Ledger is a bad actor and will single-handedly ruin the already sub-par francise.

    prick

    by Lost Jarv

    see, this is the point: <P>Explain why Batman Begins sucks balls? all you have done here is post a trollish statement intending to provoke. Then when you have done that explain why you think Heath Ledger is a bad actor. <P>Troll

    oh Jarv...

    by Braffed

    you are such the John McClain of the talkbacks. you are so sad. You have this inflated image of yourself as this holy monitor and it really is pathetic. However, since i havent givin my donation the special olympics this year, I 'm going to indulge you and your soft skull...Batman Begins sucks becasue there wasn't a batman until an hour or so into the movie. The Scarcrow was lame and so was the Raz guy. Katie Holmes is a fucking horrible actor and what the fuck was that microwave device. Fucking stupid. Oh, and his voice when he was in "character" Fucking horrible. AS for Leaf Headger...Seriously, have you seen the Patriot or Knight's tale? He's totally forgettable in movies, and from what I've seen in the previews of DK, he's not really playing the Joker that I'm use to. I bet Bill Fingers and Jerry Robinson are so fucking embarassed. There...I did my noble deed for the day. Sorry Mr Nice Gays... I might have more compassion for your pointless observations next year

  • April 25, 2008, 9:29 a.m. CST

    Well Braffed, seeing as you are now actually

    by Lost Jarv

    venturing forth opinions, riddle me this: <P>Batman Begins was an origin story- although Batman wasn't present his training and roots were. Bruce Wayne was very much there. <P>I liked the scarecrow, and I thought Ras al Gul was a clever adaptation of the comic. <P>The microwave thing, whilst shit is not the worst idea I've ever seen, and I have to agree that Katie Holmes is awful. Overall I give it a solid 7 out of 10. <P>Leaf HEdger (very clever) was an emerging actor, I have seen the films that you mention and they are pretty forgettable movies. However, he had a hell of a lot of potential and did not stink up the screen like Haydn Christianssen. I understand that you have a vision of the Joker, and that's fine but it is OK to enjoy someone else's portrayal. I'm looking forward to it. <P>See isn't this more fun?

    Wow Jarv...

    I admit...it is fun.

    so, any chance you are going to give the trolling

    by Lost Jarv

    a rest?

  • April 25, 2008, 9:50 a.m. CST

    broke out of your shell I see

    by just pillow talk

    And you really can't say Heath is not the joker, cause from my understanding, there's been different variations of the joker. No one's version will be the same that is in your head. What matters is that you feel this could be a crazy villain who can do heinous things to Batman and Gotham.

  • April 25, 2008, 9:52 a.m. CST

    Sure...

    by Braffed

    we can call a truce.

    Thank fuck

    You are the least of my troll problems at the moment.

  • April 25, 2008, 9:56 a.m. CST

    amazing

    That's all I've got to say.

    See...

    you had to slip in that "trool" comment..

    troll i mean

    by Braffed

  • April 25, 2008, 10:10 a.m. CST

    Sorry.

    by Lost Jarv

    It was unnecessary- especially as you've just agreed to stop.

  • April 25, 2008, 10:32 a.m. CST

    no worries...

    by Braffed

    old habits die hard. man, now that was a great fucking movie!

    30 Days Of Night

    by mrbong

    was no masterpiece, but it was kind of fun to watch. that snow blower thing with the massive chainsaw like thing on it was ace at least. yeah, 2007 was not the greatest for horror films. did that thing "Severance" count as a 2007 'horror', though? a "homage" to every other horror film of its kind, for sure, but decent fun all the same.

    Lord Of The Rings

    by mrbong

    was surely more "Sorcery And Swords" than it was "Swords And Sorcery", no? it was a number of other things too, but as a gesture towards the goodwill that appears to be developing here, i shall remain silent.

  • April 25, 2008, 12:42 p.m. CST

    don't let that stop you mrbong

    by just pillow talk

    fire away!<p>And Braffed, that is the best thing you have posted I think regarding Die Hard.

  • April 25, 2008, 1:37 p.m. CST

    well, ok then

    by mrbong

    i still don't understand why exactly everyone got all excited about Lord Of The Rings, really. ostensibly it was about short people walking over fields with an item of some value for 9 hours, interspersed with slightly taller and considerably taller people twatting each other with swords, hammers and what have you. and, of course, the two sorcerer types twatting each other and a range of other things. 3 sorcerers i suppose, if you count that massive eye thingie. the books were rather tiresome and in need of a rather good editor. there you go, pillow talk. hope this helps keep it in the top 10.

    I wonder if old ' Manimal ' himself will make an appearance in the sequel as he was in the original... Fuck, I'd love to see Manimal again..

    See, for me, I found them enthralling. FOTR was by far the best of the three, and was of the best movie-going experiences for me personally. I absolutely loved that movie and was blown away by it. I though Jackson nailed it, and to me, that was the world I was expecting. I still enjoy the hell out of the next two, just not as much.

    just pillow talk......

    by mrbong

    nice one mate, and i appreciate i am in the minority of film lovers who just didn't quite get into LOTR. oh well. Jackson did an excellent job from an adaptation point of view, but me not particularly liking the books meant that no matter how good the films were they were not going to do much for me. ho hum.

    by mrbong

    here's a sad claim to fame. i met Simon whilst we were on a family holiday in Malta in the mid-80's. he was a really good sport - he guided the way for our family around all the various Maltese film sets, although at the time the big one there was the Popeye set. he was rather impressed with my tapes of Frankie Goes To Hollywood remixes. call me sad if you want, but at least i met someone that was in the ace S & S!!!!!

    30 Days of Night was partially entertaining.

    by Pops Freshemeyer

    Up until the whole Josh Hartnett gaining super vampire powers thing. Then it was just as lame as Hostel or Touristas or whatever. Zob Rombie's Halloween was good because of Malcolm McDowell. He saved the movie. The rest was garbage, especially Robbie Z basing Michael Myers on his own childhood with the stepdad calling him a fag. The whole rape scene at the asylum was just incredibly stupid...reminded me of the whole "let's turn Hannibal Lecter into a hero by having him kill people more evil than him" thing. Zzzz...

    Hostage was on TV last night

    by mrbong

    never saw it before. was that two cast members of Prison Break i saw in it? not really all that memorable to be honest, although attempting to mix Die Hard with The Towering Inferno was at least an interesting idea.

    just noticed your response...i was in no way telling people what to do. i was responding to spud mcspud's response to my original post. he suggested that movies are all there is, besides politics and religion to believe in and i was simply offering my opinion. if there is one thing i cannot stand, it's being misunderstood and having someone jump to conclusions after taking some simple words out of context.

    by dell12345

    Hey men, I saw your post about the new cast. I have tones of new info and pics of Yancy Buttler (how HOT is she???). But I’m trying to find some info about Victoria Maurette and Inbar Lavi. I have some but not the best…. Also, what are they going to play? Thanks!

    What they really need to do is...

    by Borgnine JR

    ....quit wasting time on a sequel and put some effort into cgi'ing kathleen Beller into Hawk the Slayer. Now that's some good Sword & Sorcery.
