The Phantom – NewTrailer
RHI Entertainment has posted a new trailer for their TV movie of THE PHANTOM – which looks an expanded version of last year’s advanced trailer.
Ryan Carnes (DOCTOR WHO: Evolution of the Daleks/Daleks in Manhattan) plays Chris Moore, a young man that does not know he is really Kit Walker, next in line and unprepared to become the mysterious vigilante known as as The Phantom, scourge of pirates an evil-doers for centuries.
The two-part ‘mini’ is expected to air this June on SyFy. It’s from RHI Entertainment, which has produced a number of projects for the cable station, including the one-season FLASH GORDON update — also a King Features’ comic strip character.
The TV film features, among others, Isabella Rossellini (ALIAS) and Cas Anvar (PUNISHER: WAR ZONE).
It was written by Daniel Knauf (CARNIVÁLE) and Charles H. Knauf, and directed by Paolo Barzman (DR.JEKYLL & MR. HYDE, 2008).
THE PHANTOM has the potential to spin off into a series on SyFy. It aired in Candada on Dec. 20th, 2009, without generating much noticable comment here in the U.S.
**UPDATE** May 3. 2010– According to The Hollywood Reporter SyFy will air both parts of the four hour PHANTOM June 20th, 2010.
